human settlement in United Kingdom
|Location||Neath Port Talbot County Borough, Wales|
English: Abercregan is a village in the Welsh county borough of Neath Port Talbot, Glamorgan. It is situated around 12 km 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. Now a small village of around 30 houses, Abercregan is in surroundings which have returned to their former pre-industrial rural condition. Abercregan is within the boundaries of the Afan Forest Park which is a joint venture between Forest Enterprise, the Local Authority and local businesses which promote and provide provisions for green tourism in the area. The local authority decided to move the Field Study Centre in Abercregan to Margam Park and demolish the building which once housed the village school.
