Iron Mountain Trail: Part One


The Iron Mountain Trail is a circular walk that can either be treated as a separate walk or can be combined with part two to give a 18km, 12 mile circuit of the major sites of the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape World Heritage Site. The trail is a unique opportunity to explore the wonderful landscape of the World Heritage Site which is situated between the towns of Blaenavon and Abergavenny in the South East corner of the Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales. This spectacular trail follows the routes of former tramways, inclines and footpaths linking many of the historic features which make this landscape of world significance.
