Maesteg Town Information

A major coal-mining town near Bridgend, Maesteg stands on the banks of the River Lynfi and owed its initial prosperity to iron working before the discovery of ‘black gold’. Since then it has been transformed and is now one of the most important shopping centres in the region. It was the birthplace of the 20th century poet Vernon Watkins.
