Flemingston can be found to the south of Cowbridge, and to the north of St Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales. Flemingston sits in the heart of Glamorgan and is visited by many while walking the Vale of Glamorgan Heritage Trail.

It is where he made his home, where he raised his children, where he dreamed of Glamorgan's Romantic and druidic past, and where he composed many of his letters, poems, essays and literary forgeries.
