Welcome to Llanelli Community Heritage. Launched on St David's Day 2004, the society's main aim is to consolidate the work of local historians in preserving historic buildings and structures and to promote the community's rich heritage. Through its work the society aims to enhance community awareness and identity and encourage civic pride by bringing history to the local communities as well as promoting lifelong learning, recreation, leisure and tourism. Since its inception it has succeeded in setting up many Interpretive Panels and Blue Plaques and commemorating famous buildings and celebrities. The spelling Llanelly is an anglicised form of Llanelli which was used until 1966 hence both spellings are used as appropriate throughout this site.
