A panoramic aerial photo of Brynmawr taken in December 2014, showing the eastern half of Parc Nant y Waun and the Machine Pond .


The aerial photo below was taken over  Beaufort Hill Ponds & Woodlands, but the Machine Pond can be clearly seen in the distance.

Recently, some excellent aerial photos were taken in the area, using a Phantom Vision 2  RC quadcopter - pictured below. ( it has a camera fixed underneath that takes 14 megapixel photos and also shoots HD video).

The photos were taken by Bill Hillier and they remain his copyright, but he has given his permission for them to be published on this website,  also on the Beaufort Hill Woodlands & the Ebbw Fach Trail websites


To view more of his work, please visit the

"Wales from above" website, by clicking on the quadcopter below.
