Blaenavon Travel guide
Blaenavon : Michelin's recommendations
Blaenavon is set among the coalfields of the Valleys. Here, at Big Pit, where mining ceased in 1980, the old pithead where the coal was stored is open to visitors. Comprehensive displays recall the realities of work in this now largely defunct industry.
