  • The port at Amlwch was developed due to the high importance of the copper mine at Parys Mountain.

    The harbour built in 18th century in a small north facing cove is protected by breakwaters. Small museum and heritage trail explaining the few remains that hint of its past. Ship trade started to slow down when the new railway started to make transporting copper cheaper than by boat.

    Parys Mountain provided Anglesey with copper back in the bronze age and later the Romans exploited it. It was during the industrial revolution (late 1760’s) that Parys Mountain became the largest copper mine in Europe (probably the world) and Amlwch Port was extended and became very important to the trade.
