In 1827 an article entitled 'Interesting Settlement in Wales - an account of the principles and progress of an experiment for improving the condition of the labouring classes of society, in the hills of Monmouthshire,' appeared in The Oriental Herald. The author was John Moggridge a Monmouth magistrate and industrialist. In the article he described the scheme that he had set up on his land in the Sirhowy Valley. Appalled by the living conditions of the colliers in the valley, Moggridge had consulted with Robert Owen and devised a variant of Owen's villages of co-operation. Moggridge's aim was to give working people independence and self-respect.
