Blaenavon World Heritage Site

Blaenavon World Heritage Site


In 2000 Blaenavon Industrial Landscape joined the World Heritage list. To visit this extraordinary landscape on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park is akin to an adventuire in time travel. Go down a mine, walk through abandoned quarries or visit the historic town. See how people from the past exploited natural resources to change the world, how they lived, and how nature has returned to this land once torn apart.
