    This place hasnt been reported on in a few years and was well worth a look, also my first time swimming in chest waders before we had even entered which set the tone for the day, all in all a great wander with many tunnels running off in different directions and well worth a revisit in the near future to check them all out.

    Some History

    The Culvert in Ebbw Vale is along the River Ebbw Fawr, a stretch of just over a mile of the river was culverted in 1937 to accommodate expansion of the steel works. The tunnel was originally a brick lined concrete arch for its entire length. In places it has raised walkways on either side, it is well documented that someone died in this Culvert from touching a live wire that some metal theives had cut some years ago.
