  Maesteg
Maesteg’s origins can be traced back to the establishment of iron making in the late 1820’s.
Concurrently with the building of the Maesteg Ironworks, the Duffryn Llynfi and Porthcawl horse drawn railway was constructed between the town and the docks at Porthcawl.
As a measure of the influence of the MP, part of the Maesteg district was known as Bowrington for a number of years in the middle of the nineteenth century.

  Maesteg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Maesteg is a British town located at the northernmost end of the Llynfi Valley in the north of the Welsh county borough of Bridgend in the traditional county of Glamorgan.
Maesteg was little prepared for the closure of the mines in the 1980s and this lead to high unemployment which was exacerbated by the nationwide recession of the early 1990s.
Maesteg - this is located adjacent to the Somerfield store in the town centre and serves the town itself, with a bus link from the villages of Caerau and Nantyffyllon at the northern end of the valley.
