Amlwch is a small village on the North coast of the Isle of Anglesey just off the North Wales coast. In the C18th and C19th it was the location of the largest open cast copper mine in the world.
The need to export from the copper mine resulted in the development of a small local harbour and ship building industry many people came into the Amlwch area to work in these industries.
The sailing ships also resulted in people leaving Amlwch to live and work in many areas around the world.
