Joseph Parry’s Cottage
Joseph Parry’s cottage number 4 Chapel Row, Merthyr Tydfil. Joseph Parry was a musician and Composer born in 1841 in Merthyr Tydfil.
Joseph Parry’s cottage is a fine example of a typical 19th Century ironworker’s home built in 1825 for the workers of the Cyfarthfa Ironworks. Joseph’s much loved ‘Myfanwy’ is still a favourite of Welsh Male Voice Choirs to this day. The interior of the cottage is set in the 1840s, and shows the living conditions of the ironworkers at the time when Parry was a young boy. The upstairs galleries house an exhibition about Joseph Parry’s life and work.
