4 Chapel Row is a fine example of a typical ironworker's cottage. Built in the 1820's for the workers of the Cyfarthfa Ironworks, the cottage was the birthplace in 1841 of Joseph Parry, Wales best known composer. His much loved 'Myfanwy' is still a favourite of Welsh Male Voice Choirs to this day. The interior of the cottage is set in the 1840's, and shows the living conditions of the ironworkers at the time when Parry was a young boy.
