It's just an abandoned works with no information about it on display about its previous use, however for photographers it is a diamond in the rough! At the right time with the right light the colours are absolutely amazing.

Truly fascinating brick works ruins on a stunning beach. It's hard to find somewhere to park, and it's a bit of a tricky walk down, but well worth it. It's like something straight out of uncharted or tomb raider! – Google Review

If you're lucky enough to park at the closest possible point, you'll have to walk around 15-20 minutes on a steep downhill to Porth Wen Brickworks. Overall, there are great photo opportunities especially if you visit at a quiet time.
