Oakdale was built in the early 1900s to a radical new design. All homes were built with unheard-of luxuries like hot and cold running water,gardens and bathrooms as standard,and the village was equipped with its own hospital, hotel, shops, school and churches and chapels. The mine is now closed and the area reclaimed for development. This 170 acre site is the largest available industrial site in Wales.
