Manufacturing and the public sector
Modern-day Merthyr boasts a combination of public sector, manufacturing, and service sector companies at the heart of the local economy. The Welsh Assembly Government has a major office just outside the town centre.
The County Borough is located in an environmentally, historically, and culturally rich area of Wales with huge potential for tourism. The Brecon Mountain Railway is located within the Brecon Beacons National Park, in the north of Merthyr Tydfil County Borough, starting at Pant and currently running to Dolygaer (though there are plans to extend even further).
The Forest Fawr Geopark, designated in 2005 in recognition of the area’s outstanding geological and cultural heritage, also falls within the northern border of Merthyr Tydfil County Borough. The Taff Bargoed Valley is also increasingly becoming an area for outdoor activities and is home to Parc Taff Bargoed and the Summit Centre (formerly Welsh International Climbing Centre).
