In this book the author traces the south Wales town of Briton Ferry (Llansawel) and its people through industrialisation, de-industrialisation and austerity. It considers whether this once vibrant and innovative community, now labelled as a dormitory, can re-invent itself and restore its glorious past.
This 200-page paperback book is packed with anecdotes and over 130 illustrations, many in full colour. It will be of great interest to schools, students and present and past residents of the town. It will also attract a much wider readership wishing to understand the industrialisation and de-industrialisation of Britain and some of its consequences.
Each of the ten chapters introduces new and interesting information about the town and people.
