About Copper Kingdom
Under the inspired management of Anglesey-born lawyer Thomas Williams, novel uses were found for the copper, such as sheathing for the hulls of wooden warships. Nelson’s flagship HMS Victory thus gained speed and manoeuverability crucial to success at Trafalgar. At this time, Amlwch even minted its own copper coins!
After the mines became exhausted, Amlwch port developed its own thriving ship-building industry, launching vessels famous for their speed and beautiful lines.
Porth Amlwch retains many original buildings to explore, like the Copper Bins, the Watch House and the Workshop Chimneys. At the Sail Loft Visitor Centre, enjoy a delicious snack or browse the gift shop but don’t miss the exhibition of Amlwch’s world renowned ship-building heritage. In fact, the Porth is a wonderful place in which to simply relax and watch the activity in the harbour!
