Cycle route and footpath past the former Govilon Railway Station
National Cycle Network Route 46, a combined cycle route and footpath, here uses the trackbed of the former Abergavenny to Merthyr railway. Passenger trains on this route ceased in early January 1958. The signpost on the left shows that the route ahead leads to Clydach (3 miles), a nature reserve (4) and Brynmawr (6).
The National Cycle Network
The National Cycle Network is a network of cycle routes. It was created by the charity Sustrans LinkExternal link (Sustainable Transport), aided by a National Lottery grant.

Many routes aim to minimise contact with motor traffic, though 70% of them are on roads.[2] In some cases the NCN uses pedestrian routes, disused railways, minor roads, canal towpaths, or traffic-calmed routes in towns and cities.
