About Neath Port Talbot County
Port Talbot is located in West Glamorgan in South Wales along the eastern side of Swansea Bay and is part of the United Kingdom. It was established in the 1920s originating from the town of Aberavon but had been known as Port Talbot long before the name was made official. It is named after the Talbot family, a wealthy family that developed ports and railways in the area.
Port Talbot has a rich history in coal mining and steel and is known as a major manufacturing town specializing in steel and electronics. In 1952, the town had the largest steelworks in Wales, Abbey Works, and employed more people than any other town in Wales at the time. Abbey Work alone employed 18,000 people. A chemical plant was later developed in the 1960s. In the 1970s, a harbor was developed and provided more ways to get these goods out to the world with its ability to handle large, heavy ships.
Port Talbot is also known for its retail shops, South Wales Miners’ Museum, Margam Stones Museum, beaches, forests, and green land.
Port Talbot is home to the Vale of Neath, also known as Waterfall Country. This area has several waterfalls with walking paths and surrounding parks.
Port Talbot is considered the most populated place in Wales with a population of over 35,000 people.
