Closure of Pwll-du road, Gilwern Hill

The minor road behind Gilwern Hill (and on the edge of the Blaenavon World Heritage Site) has recently been closed off by Monmouthshire County Council, NW from SO 243119 with concrete blocks and a concreted in gate across the carriageway:

This will affect one means of access (westerly approach) to the quarried limestone crags on the western/ NW side of Gilwern Hill, although walking access across the moor from the south end of the ‘masts’ access track is unaffected.

No end date is given for it re-opening and depending on what they find, it may end up permanently closed.
