Water damage is a terrible thing to go through; however, it helps to know that Plumbers FL Services will be there quickly and efficiently when needed. Christian and Carlos make a great team. They are friendly, polite, and hard working. They are a credit to the Plumbers FL, and I’m glad they were here to help me. Thank you Christian and Carlos and the Plumbers FL crew. I always call Plumbers FL, and recommend their services to neighbors and friends. Thank you.
We have used Plumbers Florida many times in the past. The technicians are always pleasant, professional and do outstanding work. Our last experience was with William who went above and beyond our expectations. His communication skills and advise were spot on. As well as just a really, really nice man!!!
The Lost Village Of Pwlldu
In 1963 the small hamlet of Pwlldu, near Blaenavon, was demolished. Originally a mining community, the mines had long since closed, and houses had fallen into a dilapidated state of repair, with no access to either running water or a sewerage system.
The council took the decision to move residents down the valley to another village. Interviews with residents, one who had lived in the hamlet for over 70 years, show that even though conditions were harsh, not all wanted to leave.
The foundations of the houses can still be seen, and The Lamb Inn seen in the film is still open today.
An interesting feature of Pwlldu is the ‘Pwlldu Tunnel’ which runs from Pwlldu to Blaenavon through the hillside. The tunnel was originally created in the late 18th Century and was one of a number of mines supplying iron and coal to Blaenavon Ironworks. In later years it was used as a tramroad tunnel.
Story has it that the ladies of Pwlldu used to walk through the tunnel to do their shopping in Blaenavon!

Pentref Coll Pwlldu
Fe ddymchwelyd pentref Pwlldu, ger Blaenafon yn 1963. Erbyn hynny roedd y cyn bentref glofal wedi dirywio tipyn, doedd yno er enghraifft ddim system ddwr na charffosiaeth.
Er fod y Cyngor wedi cynnig cartrefi newydd i’r trigolion, mae’r cyfweliadau hyn yn dangos nad oedd pawb mor awyddus i adael
Mae olion y tai iw gweld o hyd, ac mae’r dafarn ‘The Lamb Inn’ yn parhau i fod ar agor hyd heddiw.
Un nodwedd ddiddorol o hanes y pentref yw ‘Twnel Pwlldu’ sy’n rhedeg drwy grombil y mynydd o Pwlldu i Flaenafon. Adeiladwyd y twnel yn y Ddeunawfed Ganrif er mwyn cario glo i’r ffwrneisi haearn a chynyrch haearn lawr at y gamles. Yn ol y son roedd gwragedd pwlldu yn defnyddio’r twnel er mwyn picio i Flaenafon i siopa!
