Blaenavon Ironworks 2021

Substantial remains of five early blast furnaces and associated workers' housing, dating from the late 18th century onwards. Charging to casting. Charging took place at the ‘furnace top’ with coal, iron ore and limestone, before casting the molten metal in the yard below. However, the ironworks is only one part of the story. The surrounding landscape is also revolutionary in its form and function. From mines to train tracks, you can still trace the routes in and routes out, from raw material to finished product.
