Llangeinor, Bridgend County
Llangeinor sits on the banks of the Garw river in Bridgend county, South Wales. The Garw flows for 12 miles from its source at Blaengarw before meeting the Ogmore and Llynfi rivers at Aberkenfig.
One legend of this valley includes a story about a gang of villains that were called The Red Goblins. A notorious gang, they were believed to live in the caves on the mountainside. It's known that they made their living by robbing terrified travellers and drovers as they made their way up and down the valley with their wares.
Today the valley is more peaceful and the A4064 takes travellers to Pontycymer in the north and Tondu in the south. The A4093, which begins in Llangeinor, travels east over to the Ogmore valley.
Another claim to fame for Llangeinor was as the birthplace of Richard Price, the 18th century philosopher who wrote theories of government that included the freedom to worship as one wished, freedom of speech and the rights of all men to think and speak as their conscience allowed. His works inspired the peoples of the colonies in North America to declare Independence from England and set up their own country. They incorporated his thoughts into their Declaration of Independence which led to the American War of Independence.
Nearby in Brynmenyn is the 113-acre Bryngarw Country Park. The park is divided into five sections, including woodlands, water features, formal gardens, grassland and amenities. Visitors will appreciate the beautiful rivers, trees and pastures of the country park.
