Machynys, Carmarthenshire

Machynys, or Machynys Peninsula is a coastal area in south Llanelli, formerly occupied by a tinplate works and housing for its workers. After the works' closure, the housing was emptied in the mid 1960s and the site remained largely derelict awaiting abortive regeneration plans. The site has been transformed beyond recognition since 1960. It is now home to the Machynys Peninsula Golf & Country Club which hosts the Ladies Championship of Europe Welsh Open.
