Steel Town by the Sea

Port Talbot, Wales


Wales was once a country famed for industry, the south in particular being home to countless factory and mining towns, but in recent years these industrial hubs have all but disappeared. The relatively small community of Port Talbot has become the last true industrial Welsh town. 


A place everybody passes but nobody ventures into, it is a town that is considered to be an ugly, dirty part of the world. A blight on the horizon to many, and an unavoidable point on the M4 corridor, it holds a strange place in every Welshman's identity.
