Llanelly Tramways operated a tramway service in Llanelli between 1882 and 1908.[1]

History[edit]

The Llanelly Tramways Order of 1880 authorised the construction of this short horse-drawn tramway in Llanelli. The route of the line ran from Llanelli railway station to Woodend.

Closure[edit]

The horse-drawn tramways operated by the Llanelly Tramways were taken over by the Llanelly and District Electric Tramways in 1905 for £6,000.
