This website is compiled by a group of five MA History students at Swansea University. The aim of this website is to raise awareness and inform you of The Swansea & Mumbles Railway collection, housed in the Richard Burton Archive within Swansea University.

This website will briefly take you through the history and significance of the railway, the range of sources available in the archival collection, how to use these specific sources, and finally some potential research questions that can be drawn from them.

We welcome you to our site, and hopefully the archivists will be welcoming you to the collection in the future to explore some of the material for yourself.
