Wales is operating country-wide restrictions and is currently at coronavirus alert level four, with strict measures in place to limit the spread of the virus. Please check on the Welsh Government website before visiting or travelling to Wales or within Wales.


Blaenavon changed the world. These hills on the edge of the Brecon Beacons were rich with coal, limestone and iron ore – the fuel of the Industrial Revolution. From here Wales heaved and belched and blasted itself onto the global stage.
