History

The Powerhouse was built between 1921-1929. Where three turbines were used to generate hydro-electricity from the River Teifi for Llandysul and Pont-Tyweli. This system didn’t last however, and the Powerhouse fell into disrepair and wasn’t used from 1948 to the 1980s, until a group of like-minded people from the communities of Llandysul and Pont Tweli started using the Powerhouse as a Community Centre and the Arts Centre.

If you can do pop into see the exhibition, which runs 4th – 31st August 2015, 10am – 5pm.

If you’ve missed this exhibition, pop in for a coffee anyway, it’s very informal, everyone is friendly and there is always a exhibition on to see.

 

Happy painting.

Chris
