Crumlin is situated five miles west of Pontypool in the Ebbw Valley, Caerphilly County, South Wales. It is bordered by Swffryd Crumlin to the north, Newbridge to the south, Oakdale to the west and Hafodyrynys to the east, with nearby villages and towns including Glandwr, Bargoed, Blackwood, Crosskeys and Abertillery.
The village made its name thanks to its former viaduct. The railway viaduct opened in June 1857 and served the Newport, Abergavenny and Hereford Railway. Altogether it was 1066 feet and 584 feet in length and height and was the highest viaduct in Great Britain. Sadly, it closed in 1964 and by 1967 the viaduct had been demolished.....
