Greenway House sits to the northside of Talywain or "Tâl" "Y" "Waun" or "Gwaun" (Tâl meaning "pay", Y meaning "the" and Gwaun meaning "moor"). Pay the moor.
Originally Talywain was the home of a few stone built farmhouses and cottages, with their inhabitants living from off the land, however in the early 1800's the industrial revolution truely took hold of the community with many homes being built at this time, to house the workers of the Varteg, Golynos and the British Ironworks, culminating in the late 1800's with the construction of the Talywain Viaduct Railway. Following the decline of the use of coal, the railway gave way to roads, but some early 1800's buildings still remain, noticeably the Globe pub and nearby newsagents, the fish and chip shop and the Church opposite, which was built in 1832.
Now Talywain is a great leisure pursuit destination, with the Blaenavon World Heritage Centre close by, Rugby and Football clubs, the Talywain Academy Golf Centre, which is also the home of the Talywain Radio Control Racers www.talywainrcracers.com (who hold the Welsh Radio Car Association races www.wrca.org.uk three times a year) and of course beautifully scenic leisure routes for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.
