1814 The Tappendens, owners of Abernant Iron Co, established a new rolling mill at Newbridge (now Pontypridd) to make bar and plate iron and possibly had other sites there; this may have been a site belonging to the Crawshays at Ynysangharad for making nails.

A horizontal two cylinder winding engine at Penrhiw Colliery, Pontypridd, was considered to have possibly been made by Newbridge Foundry, Pontpridd [1]
