Could not review place as when we were in Laugharne for a week it was closed,and have to say it looked a bit neglected.

We are incredibly saddened to read that you were unaware that we are no longer open in this location. This closure is not of the organisations doing and is not a position we envisaged being in. Sorry for the disappointment and any inconvenience caused. We are currently in a dispute with the premises landlord and are very concerned that he has allowed the buildings to degrade as he has, especially as he has benefitted from receiving a substantial amount of work done with public Heritage Lottery Fund money. It is noted on here and on our website that we are currently closed and we have always asked visitors to contact us before visiting. We are working tirelessly to find a way to continue this incredible volunteer-based project elsewhere. We (Seimon, Min and the incredible volunteers) are in the process of relocating to Kidwelly and have formed a 'Community Interest Company' as agreed back in 2017 and are now called The History Shed Experience CIC. Please keep an eye on our new Facebook page for further information.

We come to Laugharne roughly every two years and have visited the Tin Shed each time since its opening. We walked up to visit last week only to find it closed with a blue van blocking the entrance. We were looking forward to see the Lottery funded work completed on this visit.

Thank you for leaving this review Gloria, As you are aware this closure is not of the organisations doing and is not a position we envisaged being in. Sorry for the disappointment and inconvenience caused. We are still in a dispute with the premises landlord and are trying to resolve the situation to enable all involved to move forward as soon as possible. We are working tirelessly to find a way to continue this incredible volunteer based project elsewhere and hope to announce a positive update soon. As you saw via our website that we have a new name, The History Shed Experience C.I.C. Updates will be announced via our new face book page (link below) as we don't have access to our previous Facebook page. We look forward to welcoming you to our new locations once up and running. . . https://www.facebook.com/HistoryShedExperienceCIC/

Take the opportunity to visit if you are in the area as it's a good snapshot of a period of history not seen in in this way in other ww locations. Make sure you give yourself enough time.
