Rifle range on Gwaun Felen
Gwaun Felen is a rough piece of moorland forming a part of Mynydd y Garn Fawr between Blaenavon and Blorenge characterised by tussocky heather and plentiful bleached white sandstone blocks. This intrusion into the semi-wilderness is depicted but not named on the modern OS map. Older maps reveal the presence of a rifle range of which this is the butts. 'Gwaun' means 'moor' and 'Garn Fawr' - the 'big cairn', presumably referring to Carn y Defaid atSO2709
