History educational experience planned for Kidwelly

REPLICA cottages from days gone by, open-air theatre space and a museum featuring a Sherman tank and steam engines could be coming to Kidwelly.

The town council has applied for planning permission for the History Shed Experience, which is having to move from its base in Laugharne, to create a new landscaped visitor attraction on land beyond Glan-Yr-Afon car park, off Bridge Street.

Other museum exhibits would include an armoured car, Harley-Davidson motorbike, a replica First World War trench, 20 to 30 mannequins in period costume, and stories of emigration to America.

A pole-barn area would feature live events and potentially a weekly market.

The single-storey replica cottages would have different themes, including one depicting life for Welsh settlers in America in the 1890s.

Toilets would also be provided.
