National Trust – Aberdulais Tin Works & Waterfall
Waterfalls, tin works museum, café, visitor centre in Aberdulais, Neath Port Talbot, South Wales.
Famous waterfall and fascinating industrial site with tin workers' exhibition.
Set in a steep gorge, this place demonstrates the power of water and its impact on industry.
Our film 'Reflections on Tin' traces its 400-year history, from 1584, including a visit by the famous artist JMW Turner.
An early water-powered tin works was the last industry here. Today the waters of the River Dulais are used to make Aberdulais Falls self-sufficient in environmentally friendly energy. It has the largest electricity-generating waterwheel in Europe.
Lifts enable you to access the cinema and the upper levels for excellent views of the falls.
