An Industrial Revolution, powered by water since 1584!

As water continued to cascade through the centuries, the industries continued to flow through time, and Aberdulais established its place as an industrial centre for pioneering. 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.

Step into the lives of Victorian men, women and children who helped South Wales start an industrial revolution shaping the world.

Wales’ most accessible spectacular waterfall, complete with tea-room and gift shop. Fully accessible and dogs welcome.
