Amlwch Harbour

Looking at the pictures below of the pretty little harbour at Amlwch on the north-east coast of Anglesey, it’s hard to believe that in the 18th century this was the main port for the then largest copper mine in the world at nearby Parys Mountain. From here copper was exported across the world.
