Margam is a suburb of Port Talbot in Neath Port Talbot, South Wales. Once an ancient Welsh community dominated by Margam Abbey, the whole of the parish was eventually submerged by the town of Port Talbot and became part of the industrial landscape of the South Wales Coalfield.
Margam Abbey was a Cistercian monastery founded in 1147 by Robert, Earl of Gloucester and was dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. However, all that remains of the early building is the nave of the church, converted after the Dissolution to Margam Parish Church - which remains a fine building to this day.....
