Welcome to Blaenavon

Welcome to Blaenavon, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) World Heritage Site and among the most historically and geographically fascinating towns in the UK.

At almost 420m above sea level, it is a contender for the title of Wales’s highest town.  The hills to the west of the town contain the source of the Afon Lwyd, the main river running through the county borough of Torfaen, South Wales’s easternmost valley.  The name Blaenavon literally means ‘front of the river’ or, loosely, ‘river's source’
