Description :
Trefil quarry was opened in 1794 by Edward and Jonathon Kendall in order to supply limestone to their ironworks at Beaufort. Later, limestone was carried to ironworks at Beaufort, Ebbw Vale, Sirhowy and Victoria along the Trefil Railroad, to Tredegar along the Tredegar Tramroad and to Rhymny along the Trefil Tramroad. The northern quarries are now all that survive of the whole, retaining individual quarry faces, well-preserved earthworks and tramways representing several phases of limestone quarrying from 1829 to 1919.
