Frank Olding is the organiser  of an afternoon ramble to the Chartist Cave near Tredegar, looking at some of the archaeology of upland Blaenau Gwent.  This was an brilliant opportunity to walk under the expert guidance of Frank to the Chartist Cave, also known by two Welsh names; Ogof Fawr (the ‘Big Cave’) and earlier as Tylles Fawr (the ‘Great Hole’). The more commonly used modern name “Chartist Cave” dates from 1839 when Chartist reformers used the cave to stockpile weapons in advance of their march on Newport on 4th November of that year. There is a plaque at the entrance to the cave commemorating the actions of the Chartists.

A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO FRANK FOR ARRANGING THIS WONDERFUL WALK
