Just a final comment on the Churchyard.
There is a great deal of history of the Town buried with the
15000 or so ordinary people who lie in this Churchyard. Without them
Blaenavon would not have existed. In my opinion they deserve
a better memorial than the one they have. Their place of rest is neglected,
but Big Pit in which many lost their lives (shown in the distance here) fluorishes.
And that to me is just not right.
