Blaenavon is almost certainly the best-preserved example of a traditional South Wales iron-making town. It is probably unique in Europe in possessing one of the best preserved late 18th and early 19th century ironworks in the world and a mine, now a museum, that still provides genuine underground tours rather than a mock-up. The ironworks was never amongst the largest in South Wales but it was of world importance more than once and survived far longer than most of its competitors.
The Town Council supports the community of Blaenavon and works hard to ensure that local services are maintained and enhanced.
The Council also tries to ensure that as wide a variety of community activities are available to the residents of the town.
