The British, Talywain near Pontypool, Torfaen

Following our successful Silent Valley Challenge Walk in 2018 we're continuing this autumn on another former industrial site come nature haven. Challenge yourself to a 10km trek or a more family friendly 5km walk around the former British Iron Works and colliery site, known as The British near Talywain.
Now a heritage site and important place for nature, Gwent Wildlife Trust experts will guide you as you ascend from the valley floor past the old industrial buildings towards a height of 500m above sea level. Follow the old tracks through the wooded slopes towards the heathland tops and back down in a circular route passing remnant buildings of an industrialised history.

Mountain Warehouse hiking equipment prizes to win!
