Blaenavon World Heritage site

Looking back on summer 2013. A training day with Ty Mawr for the Blaenavon World Heritage Environment Group

Up on the Blaenavon mountain next to a pit shaft is a site of workers cottages. The group were consolidating the remains of the structures after archeology had completed. Theyp needed to rebuild the stone structures for integrity and using correct (original) masonry methods deduced from the remains and using lime where appropriate. In the background is Ty Mawr’s portable lime mill.
