A Blast from the Past

By Platchet
Taken at Blaenavon Ironworks, South Wales.

The ironworks, which commenced production in 1789, is the best preserved blast furnace complex of its period and type in the world and is one of the most important monuments to have survived from the early part of the industrial revolution. Blaenavon Ironworks is historically significant as during the early nineteenth century the ironworks was one of the most important producers of iron in the world.

Go there!

Thanks to Roly for reminding me to go back with my tripod!

Nice one Gaz. I like the low viewpoint you have used here and you have captured some great tones and detail in the bricks.
