A short walk of about 4 km (2½ miles), suitable for families, taking in Garn Lakes and Coity Tip. We'll be looking at the ways in which land devastated by mining has been converted into suitable habitats for wildlife (and picnics!). If you're feeling energetic, we can climb Coity Tip and enjoy the view.

Some parts can be muddy in wet weather, so appropriate footwear is needed.
Meet at Blaenavon World Heritage Centre and follow current Government COVID-19 guidelines.

BWHEG GUIDED WALKS PROGRAMME


Some walks will be best for reasonably fit adults, but many will be suitable for older children or people with limited mobility. They will range in distance from 5 to 10 km (3 - 6 miles).

Most walks will start from the Blaenavon World Heritage Centre, usually at 10.00 a.m., with a few afternoon walks starting at 2.00 p.m. Where an alternative start point is given, this indicates an intermediate point on the walk with car parking nearby.

Please wear appropriate footwear and be prepared in case of wet weather.


Details on the walks for 2020 can be downloaded here
