FELLOWSHIP OF THE MILLENNIUM AWARD supported by a Millennium Commission grant for local parishes. This is the story of a remarkable area, including the famous 6th century monasteries of Llanilltud Fawr and Llancarfan. We tend to think of where we live as unremarkable, compared to the strangeness of the new. However, the village of St Tathan and the hamlets of Flemingstone, Gileston, Eglwys Brewys and West and East Aberthaw are not only attractive, and set in wonderful countryside, but have a history almost unique in such a small area. A historian’s delight’; ‘Among his most recent books is The Secret Vale of Glamorgan which shows a local man's pride in the history and culture of his native patch, combined with a historian's delight in tracing the past and relating it to the present. For anyone born or living in the Vale, this book should be essential reading.’; ‘fascinating.’
