<Click on the photograph to see a larger version>

High Street Station.

This was on the LNWR/LMS line to Abergavenny. The picture is looking towards Penywern with Caeracca in the far distance..

The line then enters the 'Miler' Tunnel and dives under Pant to emerge at the Morlais Junction and on to Pontsarn, then Cefn Coed

and eventuall to Merthyr Tydfil.



In the opposite direction to Abergavenny the line crossed Dowlais High Street where the rugby club now stands, (The rootops

and chimneys of Blaendowlais can be seen in the background) and then went up to Dowlais top behind the Tredegar Arms,

passing under the slip road where the   MacDonalds was situated and behind the BP garage to Rhymney 

Bridge and all points east.
