Townscape Heritage Programme

Welcome to Blaenavon Townscape Heritage Programme! 

Torfaen County Borough Council is implementing a £1.9m heritage regeneration project to manage positive changes to the town centre and promote Blaenavon as a World Heritage Site and tourist destination.

The funding will allow the Council to deliver a Townscape Heritage Programme which will help local property owners based on Broad Street to make heritage-based improvements to their properties, improving the look and feel of the town centre to make it a more attractive place to visit and do business.

Bethlehem Chapel rebuilt in 1840 in its current form. The first of the THP Project renovation projects completed.

It will also fund projects designed to engage with the local community including; creating learning opportunities for school children to celebrate their town’s heritage, conservation apprenticeship placements, World Heritage Day parades and much more. Our activities are designed to engage with the local community and volunteers on a wide range of activities that deliver skills and training whilst underpinning the areas history.
