History of Clyne Farm Centre
Clyne Farm was bought by the present owners - The Haden family - in 1989.  At the turn of the century, our grounds and buildings formed part of the Estate of the Vivians of Clyne Castle, the copper barons of Swansea and the world.  On the death of the last owner of Clyne Castle - Admiral Hengeage Vivian in 1952 the estate was broken up and sold off in separate lots. Clyne Farm was bought by Alex Coombe Tennant as a wedding present for his wife.  

The Tennant part of the family derive their wealth from the Neath and Tennant Canal which was developed by Alex's great grandfather to bring coal from the Neath Valley to the growing port of Swansea and to his dock at Port Tennant - a name which still survives today for the area of housing north of Swansea Docks. The canal effectively put pay to Neath's aspirations to be a major exporting port.

Almost uniquely for a canal owner George Tennant purchased the land each side of the canal and so retained control. It did not, however, begin to make money until after George Tennant's death. Until recently it has supplied cooling water for oil and chemical works at BP Llandarcy and BP Baglan Bay

Clyne Farm was historically much larger but in the sixties and seventies much of the land was built on and the housing estate around Westport Avenue was the result. The farm ceased to be a busy dairy farm in 1966 and since then had fallen into almost dereliction.
