Abertillery

Details

Lying in the mountainous mining district in the valley of the Ebbw Fach, the population was traditionally employed in the numerous coalmines, ironworks and tinplate works, now defunct. Further up the same valley are the mining townships of Nantyglo and Blaina.

Over the past couple of decades the town has been transformed from industrial relic into the clean, modernised area it is today.

The nearest railway station to Abertillery is Llanhilleth on the Ebbw Valley line from Cardiff Central.
