Ebbw Vale

Ebbw Vale, a former coal and clay-products area, is a small residential suburb 6 km north-east of central Ipswich. It was named after the Ebbw Vale colliery, opened by John Jones in 1877, the name being of Welsh origin. Ebbw Vale, Monmouthshire, was a coal-mining centre, as well as having iron-processing industries and limestone deposits.
