Description and Travel

"A market town on the north edge of the Vale of Glamorgan, and a contributory borough to Cardiff. It is chiefly remarkable for its romantic situation on the brow of a hill overlooking the lowlands. The eminence is crowned by the ruins of a castle said to have been destroyed in the insurrection of Llewellyn Bren. On the opposite hill is a camp. Iron Ore was once worked in the neighbourhood, which is now occupied by colliery villages."

Glamorganshire, 1911
