The Hafod and Morfa Copper Works is one of the most important industrial heritage sites in Britain and Swansea University and Swansea Council are working together to bring the site back to life. Many local people either worked or have ancestors who worked on the site and it is a hugely important part of Swansea's history. The site is being transformed and is a beautiful venue for a walk and picnic.

Heritage and wildlife walks of the site will be given. Guided Heritage walks from local experts on Saturday 14th at 11am 1pm 3pm and 5pm.

Twenty places will be available on each walk. Booking should be made by emailing s.m.griffin@swansea.ac.uk or Stuart Griffin at 01792 602617. Find out about the site's past, what it was like to work there and get the latest news of the current development.
