Kidwelly Tinplate Works was established in 1737 and operated with varying success until its closure in 1941. Rescued by the Kidwelly Heritage Centre and Tinplate Museum Trust in 1982, the old works now interprets not only the tinplate industry, but also coal mining and brick manufacture in the area. On display are the machinery and tools used in these former key industries of Carmarthenshire.
