A little known fact about Blackwood is that the distress signals from the Titanic were picked up here, by an amateur wireless enthusiast living at the Old Mill! Needless to say this stunt got him a job working with some of the top scientists in the world and was involved in the invention of the transistor for telecommunications! The Welsh National Anthem was also composed by two natives of Blackwood, a father and son duo who composed both sheet music and lyrics for the now famous anthem. Of more recent musical fame – the members of the Manic Street Preachers all grew up and were educated in Blackwood, going on to influence a generation of rock bands that came after.
