The Vale of Glamorgan (under construction)

This is the heartland of the Welsh side of the Dearman family - the lower part of what used to be Glamorgan, between Cardiff and Bridgend.  It’s a land of rolling hills and valleys and some of the richest agricultural land in Wales, not to mention the very appealing coastline.  It is dotted with small villages and crossed by the M4 which links Cardiff, Bridgend and Swansea to London.  The Vale of Glamorgan basically lies below this road - above is the Rhondda.

Links - a site aimed at schools developing local histories.  It begins with a very comprehensive history of Stoke Newington’s development from the 18th
