Lamb and Fox Pub, Pwll-Du, Blaenavon » Lamb And Fox Pub, Pwll-Du, Blaenavon

Situated on the top of the Blorenge mountain, in Pwll-Du (pwll = pit or pool, ddu = black), near Blaenavon, is the Lamb and Fox pub. The pub was once located in a thriving village that had over 300 residents, two pubs, two chapels, several bake houses, a school and a shop. It was filled with miners, colliers, iron workers, quarrymen and tram road workers. The village began to decline after the 1930’s and by 1960 it was declared a slum with most of its residents being relocated down the valley into newly constructed council houses in Govilon. Once the houses were emptied, they were demolished; now all that remains of the village is the Lamb & Fox pub and the Welfare Hall.
