where we are and how to get here

Abertillery is a town of approximately 10,000 people in South Wales, UK. Located in a beautiful valley and previously part of one of the biggest British mining districts, the town is now a quiet residential area with a small town centre and some independent local shops.

The town centre contains some well-preserved examples of 19th and early 20th century architecture and we are occupying the shop above.

How to find us:

from Cardiff 
(or by car from Swansea or west Wales):

*by train: catch a train to Llanhilleth (dir. Ebbw Vale), then X15 (Stagecoach) or X1 (Phil Anslow) bus to Abertillery High Street.

When you get off, follow the street with the church to your left. We're 3 minutes from the bus stop, on the right at the far end of the street - opposite the Post Office.
*by car: take the M4 east, exit on junction 28 towards Brynmawr (A467) and follow that road through the hills and valleys until you reach Abertillery (should take about 25 after exiting the motorway).

from Newport

*by bus: Stagecoach X15 from Newport to Brynmawr, get off on Abertillery High Street.

*by car: the A467 from Tredger House roundabout runs direct to Abertillery, or via A4042 to Cwmbran, A472 (via Pontypool) to Crumlin and then (A467) to Abertillery.

If you're coming from the top end of the Valleys (any valley), follow the heads of the Valleys to Brynmawr and then follow the signs for Abertillery. There are several free car parks in town, the closest one to us is Foundry Bridge Car Park.
