No dogs allowed at this event

A fairly strenuous walk of about 8 km (5 miles), suitable for older children, but not recommended for young children or people with limited mobility.

This walk climbs past old coal and iron workings to The Whistle Inn and then follows a hillside track. We visit the sites of a number of small drift mines, the last of which only closed in 2009. We then descend the path to Forgeside and back to the World Heritage Centre.
Bring refreshments and wear appropriate clothes and footwear for the weather and terrain.
No dogs allowed.

 

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.
