Tredegar

Thirteen individuals and four dogs enjoyed this 8 mile, moderate, circular walk in and around the hills of Tredegar, a town rich in history, in relation to heavy industry, particularly of iron and coal, and the birthplace of Aneurin Bevan, the chief architect of the NHS.  The route passed through Tredegar taking in places of interest connected to the town's history, including the famous town clock and the iron works, and on to Mynydd Llangynidr, before dropping to Trefil, the highest village in Wales, and then back into the town via a viaduct.   The walk was completed in the awarding winning cafe in beautiful Bedwellty Park, after visiting the largest single lump of coal in the world!
