FRESH AIR, OPEN COUNTRYSIDE, A CHALLENGE, A WONDERFUL SENSE OF ACHIEVEMENT, GAIN A NEW SKILL… Want all these things? Well here is something for you!
Are you looking to meet new people while learning a brand new skill? We’re looking for volunteers to help us repair damaged walls throughout the World Heritage Site. We’ll give you all the training you’ll need to take to the countryside surrounding Blaenavon and make sure the area remains an important home for unique wildlife species such as the Red Grouse.
Since the project began, the volunteers have made approximately 2.7km of high priority commons boundaries stock-proof. This means more farmers are able to graze over a wider area, which in turn means better habitat management and improved conditions for wildlife. The walls are also heritage features in their own right, and it could cost hundreds of thousands of pounds if we were to bring in a contractor to help with their upkeep.
