The Forgotten Landscapes Project is a three year partnership project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Welsh Government intended to further develop the Blaenavon area in southeast Wales for visitors. It centres on the Blaenavon Industrial Landscape World Heritage Site but extends also to the nearby Clydach Gorge, with a total area of over 70 square kilometres (27 sq mi).

Amongst its stated aims are the protection of the area’s considerable industrial heritage, conservation of common land and heather moorland and access improvements. The project is also providing additional educational material, information and interpretation on the area including a programme of walks and talks.[1]
