Hi there, the village of Victoria was at the lower end of Ebbw Vale overlooking the steelworks.
You could read a book in your house from the light of the furnaces from the works!!
It has long since gone but just along the way from where Victoria was you will find the Festival Park shops. It also makes a nice little walk....you will find the old pond above the main road is now called the Wetlands.
I don't think there was any other place in the valleys called Victoria.

Hi

Don't know if you've moved on but the attached photo shows the village of Victoria. Looking north to the steel works. The steam and smoke were a part of every day life.

I used to visit my great grandmother who lived in Augusta Street Victoria. These houses were pulled down around 1960 I believe.
 
Cheers

Ian

Thank you all for your replies & picture.

I m still trying to find Thomas Jenkins b 1866 in Victoria,

I have him with his wife Mary 1911, 1901, living in Risca.

There are a few Thomas, s living in Ebbw Vale in the 1881 census, two look promising these are the address that are given,

2 saddlers Row

8 Trump Court

Could anyone tell me are these in Victoria I have tried to look myself but with no luck.

Thanks Lynne

Hi

Can't give a definitive answer on Saddlers Row or Trump Court. However there is a Saddlers Row on 1881 census for Bedwellty RG11/5245 District 25 but this row was nearer , what is now, the main town of Ebbw Vale but not that far from Victoria. Haven't come accross Trump Court but if you have a bit more detail on these addresses I will check them out.

Cheers

Ian
