Miners' Welfare Club,  Rhydaman/Ammanford
Miners' Welfare Club, Rhydaman/Ammanford
Built in the 20's from funds raised by the workers themselves, this was once an important focus of local community and cultural life It provided a venue for visiting speakers, political debate, educational and recreational activities as well as source of mutual support during strikes. Nowadays it is largely a drinking club but the top floor has been turned into a small mining museum which is well worth visiting.
