Opened in 1898 as a freight route carrying coal, Burry Port Station and the lines that passed through it were built along the curving course of an old canal. Passenger services began in 1909, running alongside the coal traffic until 1996 when, finally, the local coal industry closed down.

The small harbour town of Burry Port was the landing site of Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. The area is also known for its strong musical background, with Burry Port Opera, Male Choir, and Burry Port Town Band all enjoying a nationwide following.
