About Llanelli

If you didn't know that the town of Llanelli was immersed in the national sport of Rugby the first entry to Llanelli leaves you in no doubt. The town, which is the largest in Carmarthenshire, has two rugby teams - The Scarlets, who compete in the Magners League, and `Llanelli RFC who compete in the Principality Premiership. Both teams play at Parc y Scarlets which was opened in 2008. The goal posts from the Scarlets former home decorate the first roundabout into the town and are painted in white and scarlet, from them hangs the message, Llanelli home of Llanelli Scarlets.

Llanelli is on the Loughor Estuary on the west coast of Wales ten miles north west of Swansea. At one time the town was a coal mining steel making town, it also produced such a large quantity of tinplate that in the 19th century it earned the name Tinopolis, a name which has now been taken up by one of the UK's largest independent media producers. Tinopolis produces 2,500 hours of broadcast television a year. It runs Question Time for the BBC and Wedi 7 for S4C.

Llanelli also has a brewing tradition at Felinfoel just outside the town. Reverend James Buckley, a Methodist minister, became involved with establishing a brewery. In 1988 Buckley's Brewery was bought by Brains Brewery who moved production to Cardiff, however, they still make a bitter beer called the Reverend James in memory of the previous owner.

With the end of coal mining in the 1970s and a drastic scaling down of the steel industry Llanelli's fortunes decline until the Council decided to turn their attention to the tourist and leisure industry.

Some 21 miles of the Millennium Coastal Path runs through the town giving spectacular view of the Gower Peninsular. Pembrey Country Park provides a good day out for residents and holiday makers. The beach within the park, Cefn Sidan, has recently won a Blue Flag award. Llanelly House, an 18th century Georgian town house, built by a former town councillor, has been restored and has a display of Llanelly Pottery on show.

The Old Castle Works leisure centre provides indoor entertainment from theatre to cinema and ten pin bowling. Llanelli Wildlife and Wetlands trust provides a home for 600 of the world's most spectacular and rare birds including flamingoes and Hawiian geese and in spring and summer offers canoe safaris and hires out bikes with toddler trailers to explore the 450 acre mosaic of lakes and pool.

The town has also spruced up its waterfront with businesses, leisure facilities and residential property.

Amongst Llanelli's annual events are Llanelli's Big Day Out, in August, a pop and live music festival; a beer festival in August, a Christmas Carnival in November, and so many sporting fixtures to list here.

An interesting snippet of information is that the people of Llanelli used to be called Turks. The only reason advanced for this is that when Llanelli's dock were busy many Turkish sailors would call there.
