Deal to be struck to save Brymbo Ironworks building





Wrexham council is to negotiate with the owners of the former Brymbo Ironworks to help preserve key buildings.

The plant closed in 1990, leaving about 6,000 people out of work.

A number of historic buildings, including the Grade II-listed former agent's house, are in disrepair.

Wrexham planners agreed on Monday to strike a deal with Brymbo Developments Ltd to install a temporary roof on the Grade II-listed former agent's house.

The site includes several scheduled ancient monuments, such as the foundry, the number one blast furnace, the joiners shop and the pattern makers workshop.

The machine shop and the agents house are Grade II-listed buildings.

The agents house is the only building on site which "can be proved to be original" to the establishment of the ironworks by John Wilkinson in the 18th Century....
