This gallery offers a chance to find out more about the history
of a vibrant coal mining community.
In the late 19th century, large-scale industry transformed the
Amman Valley. Rich natural resources, especially the famous
anthracite coal, brought coal mines, iron and tinplate works,
railways and people to work them.
The gallery pays tribute tribute to one of its famous sons,
Jim Griffiths of Betws, miner’s leader, Llanelli MP and the
first Secretary of State for Wales.
Open: Monday – Saturday 10am – 5pm
