Aberdulais Falls

For over 400 years the falls provided the energy to drive the wheels of industry, from the manufacture of copper in 1584 to the later tinplate works. Several famous artists, including Turner in 1796 visited this picturesque location. There is information on site about the tin plating which was carried out here in the early 1800’s. The site today also provides a unique hydroelectric scheme which has been developed to harness the waters of the River Dulais. The Turbine House provides access to an interactive computer, fish pass, observation window and display panels. Special lifts have been installed to allow disabled visitors access to the upper levels, which afford excellent views of the Falls. The waterwheel is the largest currently used in Europe to generate electricity, which makes Aberdulais Falls substantially self-sufficient in environmentally friendly energy.
