Abercregan, Neath Port Talbot

Abercregan is a village in the Welsh county borough of Neath Port Talbot, Glamorgan. It is situated around 12 kilometres north-east of Port Talbot and just west of Cymmer, and is also close to the River Afan. Abercregan was once a thriving mining community but since the decline of the British coal industry, much of the housing has been demolished and most of its inhabitants moved to neighbouring villages.
