The old trackway

By jond
Actually not such an old track as you'd think - part of the Brinore Tramroad built in 1815 to carry coal from mines around Tredegar to the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal at Talybont. The trains were pulled by horses, despite being built 10 years after the first steam locomotive ran at nearby Penydarren. The tramroad closed in the 1860s, a victim of competition from the new steam railways and the original engineer's inability to embrace the new technology!
