Cwm, Ebbw Vale 19 June 2015
Looking up the Ebbw Valley to Cwm, over the Miners' Memorial opened in 2009 to the Domen Fawr on the left and the tip of the Devil's Peak opposite it across the valley. To the right is the Ebbw Valley rail line, the terminus of which is in Ebbw Vale. The original line closed to passengers in 1962 but continued to serve the steelworks until its closure in 2002. The line was re-opened in 2008 and goes into Cardiff Central. The Cwm Bypass is to the right of the rail line.
I have since looked at a 1978 photograph taken from the same viewpoint and all the land on both sides of the road was part of the Marine.
