West Glamorgan - Port
Port Talbot is a town in Neath Port Talbot, Wales. It had a
population of 35,633 in 2001. Historically part of Glamorgan, Port
Talbot grew out of the original small port and market town of
Aberavon, which belonged to the medieval Lords of Afan.
Aberavon was first established by Caradoc ap Iestyn (son of Iestyn
ap Gwrgant), on the instructions of Robert Fitzhamon, after the
Norman's conquest of south Wales by the end of the eleventh century.
The town grew up with and around the castle which Fitzhamon ordered
to be built (where Castle, Norman and Bailey streets are situated
near to Saint Mary's Church in modern-day Port Talbot). The first
recorded name of Aberavon was the French Norman 'Avene' which is
likely to be an interpretation of the Welsh 'a-bhan' meaning 'from
the heights' meaning the hills of the Afan Valley, from whence
flowed the River Afan. 'Afan' is always pronounced 'Avan'. Margam
Abbey was founded in 1147 as a daughter house of Clairvaux, a
Cistercian foundation, by Robert, 1st Earl of Gloucester. Local
landowner John Talbot, fought at the Battle of Crécy, and bred the
Talbot dog, a breed of small white dog, an ancestor of the modern
among mature woodland, TY’N-Y-COED is a stylish modern bungalow
