Swansea Docks

Swansea Docks from the air

Introduction

This website has been created by a group of local ex-docks employees with a view to providing a glimpse into the activities at Swansea & Port Talbot Docks in days gone by. Many contributors have sent us information and photographs over the years, and to these individuals we are extremely grateful. As well as an extensive selection of photographs, the website incorporates many articles on the history, development and trade of the ports of Swansea and Port Talbot, and all this information can be accessed from the menu buttons below. We hope you will enjoy browsing through the many and varied topics the site has to offer.
