Brunel Tower Vandalised

An important part of Briton Ferry's industrial heritage has been sadly vandalised recently.

The Brunel Tower which is situated in the Brunel Quays and was renovated in 2008/09 has been the first phase of redevelopment for the dock area of Briton Ferry.

Sadly, the front and back windows, which are specialised hand made windows have been smashed and stones found inside the tower amongst the broken glass.

Councillor Hugh James and Chairman of the Brunel Dock Society said today, "It's a frustrating and sad occurrence for Briton Ferry and the Briton Ferry Brunel Dock Trust, as we are working very hard to obtain funding for the next phase of the development of this important historical part of our town.

But it's not going to dampen our enthusiasm as we strive to keep our heritage for future generations."

As the tower is a Grade 2 listed building the Trust is now looking for funding and help to fix the hand blown glass windows and hopefully install vandal proof mesh to cover the repairs.
