Blaenavon Industrial Landscape

I've been here!

The area around Blaenavon is evidence of the pre-eminence of South Wales as the world’s major producer of iron and coal in the 19th century. All the necessary elements can still be seen – coal and ore mines, quarries, a primitive railway system, furnaces, workers’ homes, and the social infrastructure of their community.

Why should you travel to Blaenavon?

  • The Blaenavon landscape constitutes an exceptional illustration in material form of the social and economic structure of 19th century industry.
  • The components of the Blaenavon industrial landscape together make up an outstanding and remarkably complete example of a 19th century industrial landscape.
