The lower Swansea Valley earned the dubious accolade of being the greatest area of industrial dereliction in Western Europe, Swansea’s industrial past had taken its toll with derelict buildings and a decimated and poisoned landscape.
The early 1960’s saw a turning-point when there were a number of adventurous environmental initiatives that have given us the greener and greater Swansea we are fortunate to experience today.
