COUNTY Hall in Cwmbran, originally the home of Gwent County Council, was formerly opened by the Queen Mother in 1978. A modern design for this period over seven floors, the building also contained a nuclear bunker in the basement. However, after the discovery of 'concrete cancer' which would have cost £30m to repair, the building was eventually demolished in 2013.
