Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, many attractions are delaying their 2020 season until at least early July and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events. There will be no public events until early July at the latest.

While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like. Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event’s website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.

Blaenavon Ironworks

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.
