Aberdulais Tinworks and Waterfall

In 1584 Ulrich Frosse exploited the natural resources of Aberdulais to smelt copper ‘…far from the pryinge eyes of his competitors’. His pioneering work helped Wales to become the world’s first Industrial nation. And as water continued to cascade through the centuries, the industries continued to flow through time, and Aberdulais established its place as an industrial centre.

Discover how a small village in the Welsh valleys used cutting edge technologies to harness an ice age landscape and breath-taking waterfalls, to shape the industries that changed the world….Aberdulais – An Industrial Revolution, powered by water since 1584!
