Both ends of the tunnel mapBoth ends of the tunnel – Pwll Du Tunnel

The Pwll Du tramway tunnel was once the longest of its kind in the world, bringing limestone from quarries in Tyla and Pwll Du to the Blaenafon Iron Works. This walk of about 9 km (6 miles) takes us to both ends of the tunnel.

It’s hard going in places, and so unfortunately isn’t suitable for those with limited mobility, but it’s well worth the effort.

Some parts can be very muddy (and not just in wet weather!), so appropriate footwear and clothing is essential.
Bringing refreshments is advisable too.
