Building on the information already part of the permanent exhibition in the Centre, this new display provides additional details and photographs of the development of the line and its significance to the town. Whilst the original purpose of the line was to link the industrial areas of 19th century England and South Wales it had far more importance as a key element of the development of the village into a tourist destination. The late 19th and early 20th century saw thousands of visitors coming to ‘take the waters’ and benefit from pursuits in the surrounding countryside promoting ‘health and vigour’.
