Barry

"A large sea port in the south of the county. Its career has been one of extraordinary prosperity. Fifty years ago it did not exist; today it is one of the most promising ports in South Wales, and its docks are some of the finest in the Glamorgan. The town forms an amphitheatre round the docks, and comprises the districts of Cadoxton, Barry Dock, Barry, and Barry Island. The last, now an island only in name, is regarded as the local holiday quarter, and possesses a bathing place. On the summit of the cliff are the foundations of an ancient chapel, and on the mainland is the gateway of a medieval castle."

[Glamorganshire, 1911]
