Blaen y Cwm Viaduct,known to all locally as The nine arches is a grade 11 listed building.
four miles from Brynmawr westwards to Nantybwch, north of Tredegar, was bridged early in 1864. At its western end, the line crossed a double-track viaduct of 110 yards in length, curving to the south on a radius of about 15 chains. Crossing the Sirhowy River, it comprises nine 30-foot spans, the arches being built of four brick rings whilst the rest of the structure is limestone.
