Injured through no fault of your own and need expert personal injury solicitors in Amlwch to help you claim compensation?
Amlwch is a community and the most northerly town in Wales. It is situated on the north coast of the Isle of Anglesey. The town has no beach, but it has impressive coastal cliffs. Tourism is an important element of the local economy.
Copper mining was the town’s main industry for hundreds of years and was exported all over the world but when this began to decline shipbuilding became the main industry with many people also becoming involved in the ship repair and other maritime industries. Even after the decline of the copper mine some chemical industries remained and in 1953 a chemical plant to extract bromine from sea water (for use in petrol engines) was built but this closed in 2004.
