Availability: In stock

Author: Keith E. Morgan

The ancient town of Kidwelly grew up around its thirteenth-century Norman castle, eventually expanding further during the Industrial Revolution that spread throughout South Wales. The town was home to a large brickworks, harbour and tinplate works. The latter, which was founded in 1737, the second oldest in Wales and the world, did not close until 1941. It is now a Tinplate Industrial Museum and the only surviving example of the Welsh Double or Pack Mill method of tinplate manufacture that led the world for nigh on 200 years.

Kidwelly Through Time offers the reader a real insight into the ways in which the town has changed throughout the nineteenth and into the twentieth century. Follow well-known local historian Keith Morgan as he guides us through the streets of this small but illustrious Carmarthenshire town. There’s something for everyone here, whether they’ve lived in the area all their lives or visiting for the first time.
