In memory of a disaster in July 1929

This is another guided walk led by volunteers of the Blaenavon World Heritage Environment Group (BWHEG).

A walk of about 10 km (6 miles) over paths which may be muddy. Suitable for older children, but not recommended for people with limited mobility. We leave the Heritage Centre to join and follow the SUSTRANS cycle path through Garn Lakes and then towards the Racehorse Inn. Near this point, we double back, passing the sites of the former Milfraen and Red Ash collieries and then follow the path past the Coity Tips to return to base.

More information about the disaster can be found here.
