Famous Llanelli brewery makes endangered buildings list

A 19th century Llanelli brewery has been listed as one of 2017 top 10 endangered buildings.

The Buckley's Brewery Maltings, one of the first in the world to produce canned beer, have been empty for almost 20 years.

The brewery has fallen into disrepair since it closed in 1998.

It’s disappointing to see these listed buildings shut up and ignored whilst new commercial and residential developments have been erected all around.

A sensitive restoration scheme would make these former maltings a highly desirable asset to Llanelli, and we hope their inclusion in this year’s Top 10 list highlights this to the current owners and action is taken without delay.

– Christopher Costelloe, Victorian Society Director

The Victorian Society campaign aims to increase the publicity of at-risk buildings in the hope that they will be saved.

Scarlets flanker James Davies will be out of action for twelve weeks due to a shoulder injury.

Davies, who was part of the Great Britain sevens squad at last year's Rio Olympics, will undergo surgery tomorrow (8 September) to repair damage sustained last season.

He was trailing rehabilitation sessions but the injury hasn’t improved enough to cope with the demands of competition.
