Clydach Gorge, Wales

30 March 2012

After our tent had been set up in the Brecon Beacons it was time to explore the area. This area of Wales is filled with Industrial history. The Clydach Ironworks near Brynmawr in the Clydach Gorge was our first stop. This region was a giant coal field at one time. The ironworks closed around 1861. All that is left is a ruin.

These salt/grit boxes can be seen everywhere on the sides of the roads. I am not sure if someone sprinkles the salt by hand using a spreader or not. We did not see any trucks built for this job.

The scars on the land from the industrial age can still be seen today.

The ironworks may be gone but the legacy remains.
