About 150 years ago at this site there was a GWR station connecting to Newport, spoil heaps and ironmasters mansions. The Trevor Rowson Park is a popular amenity for short rambles with the dog, good for joggers and children to spend the day in this beautiful little idyll.
This park is dedicated to Trevor Rowson, a local historian and a local memorial to him can be found on site.
The Trevor Rowson Park is an 18 acre site in Nantyglo, Gwent. It is leased to the Nantyglo Action Group (NAG) who who have obtained grants for the provision of footpaths, ponds, picnic sites and tree-planting. Where once was pit, railway, spoil heaps and Brewer's Mansion there now is a peaceful idyll well used by people and wildlife.
