Redbrook Tinplate Manager's House c. 1910.

Tinplate Manager's House

The original Redbrook Tinplate Works Manager House c.1910.

Phil wrote: "... The house may well have dated from the early 1700's before the Lower Redbrook Copperworks converted to Tinplate production in about 1771".

Mike Jones added (May 2011): "... For my sins I demolished this house in C 1988/90. By then it was considered beyond repair. What was salavageble was salvaged and has since been incorporated in several of the properties I have built there since. It was last used as the Redbrook Tinplate Works Office. Percy Harris wrote a history of the lower Wye Valley industries etc. but died before it could be printed. The draft is in Monmouth Museum. Acording to Percy the house was either built by or for Thomas Chambers who was the Managing Governor of The English Copper Company who headquartered there for about a century before moving to Neath Abbey".
