Sirhowy Ironworks, Dukestown, Tredegar
The first furnace at Sirhowy was built in 1778.
It is hard now to envisage the huge furnaces that existed above these arches and the associated industrial complex at this site during the 19th century. See LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) .
In front of the arches is a large lump of iron and slag.
