Neath Things to Do: 9 reviews and 42 photos
Aberdulais falls are formed as the River Dulais flows over hard Pennant Sandstone just before meeting the River Neath. The Area where the falls are at their best is owned and maintained by the National Trust. Entrance to view the falls incorporates an important part in the regions industrial heritage, it is here that Copper was produced in the 17th Century and later a tinplate works was in operation on the site. Many remains, tools and workings of the tinplate site can be seen today. As you walk around there are some rooms which provide information about the History of the tin plate workings. Aberdulais is also home to Europe's largest electricity-generating waterwheel.
Keep an eye out for some great wildlife when admiring the waterfalls, we saw a dipper bobbing up and down when we were there. You may be lucky enough to see a Kingfisher or two.
There is a lovely little coffee shop in a cottage near the entrance together with a great gift shop selling all sorts of gifts and books.
