Blaen Methyn Communal Dipping Shed

The tin houses a communal dipping place built in 1918 and was used up to 1994. It was built by the Birmingham Corporation, there was five or six built on the estate but I believe this is the only one still standing. A concrete sheep dip that was fed from water diverted from the Nant Methan via a small sluice.
