Neath Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Cardiff and South East Wales...

Set within splendid countryside, Neath is a former copper town built around a now-ruined 13th century castle that was sacked in the 14th century by Llewelynn the Great.

The Romans got here first, though, and built a fort in about 70 AD, calling it Nidum.

The remains of 12th century Neath Abbey can be seen on the outskirts of present-day Neath. At nearby Resolves is the 80ft waterfall of Melin Court.
