FROM Pontypool Museum’s digital archives are two images which take a look back at the Blaenavon Low Level railway station.

Opening in 1854, it was the northern terminus for the Monmouthshire Railway and Canal Company line.

One of the images shows the staff who worked at the station while the other shows a train dropping off passengers.

It closed in 1962.

These images were donated by the Pontypool Museum as part of its digital archive, which aims to preserve historic documents, images and records from the area.

To find out more about the digital archive, contact the museum at or call 01495 752036.

The Free Press thanks Pontypool Museum for allowing the paper to use these images.
