From its imposing vantage point high on the ridge of a hill, the town of Llantrisant has seen many changes in its long history. Bloodthirsty battles, uprisings, royal scandals and world-famous events have all played a part in shaping the vibrant town of today, as have the generations of people who have lived and worked there.
This fascinating collection of old images explores the history of Llantrisant. With accompanying text, the reader is taken on a journey through the town, exploring the streets and lanes, houses, schools, churches and workplaces. We meet many of the local, sometimes eccentric, characters along the way, learning about everyday life, culture and the traditions that have made this town a jewel in the crown of South Wales.
Charters, victorious archers, captured kings, Norman invasions and Lord Mayors of London all form part of the town s historic charm. This publication offers a nostalgic and valuable record of the past, and for newcomers it will provide an understanding of how the community has evolved and it is so well loved by residents and visitors alike.
