Maes Teg  Glamorgan


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Maes Teg like this:

MAESTEG, a town and a sub-district in Bridgend district, Glamorgan. The town is in Llangonoyd parish; stands on the river Llynvi, and on the Llynvi Valley railway, 9 miles NW by N of Bridgend; occupies a sequestered spot, entirely surrounded by ranges of hills; is a place of recent origin and of rapid growth; owes its rise and progress to the establishment and extension of ironworks; and has a station on the railway, a post office‡ under Bridgend, a chapel of ease to Llangonoyd, several dissenting chapels, and two British schools. ...

Its pop. in 1867 was not much short of 14,000.—The sub-district contains all Llangonoyd parish and seven other parishes. Pop. in 1861,8,562. Houses, 1, 689.
