Wales Valleys Walking Festival - Manufacturing and Mining Walk


Walking across the moorland to the escarpment looking over the Usk Valley and Abergavenny, then Moorland around and down to Garnddyrys Forge, along Hills tramroad past the water balance lift to the Lamb and Fox, and then over the Canada Tips to Hill Pits and back to Foxhunters by way of ancient coal workings. On the moor we may encounter Red Grouse and Summer migrants such as Wheatear, Whinchat and Cuckoo.

The terrain in some places is steep and uneven, with several gates and stiles on each route which are unsuitable for wheelchairs, buggies and prams.

Please make adequate preparations for refreshments. Wear appropriate clothing and footwear for the walk you are taking part in – we cannot predict the weather.

We reserve the right to cancel or change any walk in the event of unforeseen circumstances.

Walk starts at 10.00 and will finish at about 16.00 - bring lunch.
