A day of an Industrial Age

On our tour around Britain’s coast on most occasions the good out shines the bad, today heavy rain welcomed us as we drove along the coast around Port Talbot and the industrial coast. The air smelt of sulphur around the industrial plants and down near the sea front the smell not only filled my nostrils but clung to the back of my throat. A fantastic sandy beach backed by rows of shabby 50’s or 60’s local authority houses and chemical plants. The seafront would have developed very differently as a resort without the industry. I have always come to the coast for fresh air sadly not here. Again redevelopment is taking place here but I am not sure if this coast will ever become a mecca for the tourist.
