In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Crumlin like this:

CRUMLIN, a village in Ebbw vale, Monmouth; on the Western Valleys railway, 5 miles WSW of Pontypool. It has a station on the railway, a post office‡ under Newport, Monmouth, and an inn. A railway viaduct here is a magnificent work of ten spaces, each 150 feet wide and 210 feet high, separated by cast-iron diagonally-braced pillars; and cost about £40, 000. Crumlin Hall, in the vicinity, is a modern showy house, the seat of Mr. Kennard. A canal, 10 miles long, goes from the village down Ebbw vale into junction with the Brecon canal near Newport.
