Aberdulais Tin Works and Waterfall - National Trust

Aberdulais Falls

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.
