The following section of the website outlines the significance of the Swansea and Mumbles Railway. Here you will find information on how the railway was not only a significant piece of history but was also highly significant in Swansea’s growth from an industrial town to a modern City. This section attempts to outline the wider themes of the Swansea and Mumbles Railway and how these can be explored through the use of Primary documents. Each section will have extracts and pictures of documents from Swansea University’s Richard Burton Archives.
