Historic maps of Aberavon and the local area, hand-drawn by Ordnance Survey cartographers and Samuel Lewis.


We used to go there with our Sunday School years ago. There used to be sand dunes there. Me and my husband used to go courting there, we would catch a bus from our valley and watch the waves come in on the stormy nights, brill.
