WalesGotoarrow.pngGlamorganGotoarrow.pngParishes of Historic Glamorgan

Listed below are those ecclesiastical parishes which were in historic Glamorgan (sometimes incorrectly known as Glamorganshire), Wales.

Under the Local Government Act 1972, the county and administrative county of Glamorgan was abolished on April 1, 1974, with three new counties being established:

  • West Glamorgan
  • Mid Glamorgan
  • South Glamorgan

Following further local government reorganisation, the counties of West Glamorgan, Mid Glamorgan and South Glamorgan were abolished on April 1, 1996 and:

  • the former county of West Glamorgan was divided into the newly created county boroughs of Swansea and Neath Port Talbot
  • the former county of Mid Glamorgan was divided into the county boroughs of Bridgend, Merthyr Tydfil, Rhondda Cynon Taf and part of Caerphilly
  • the former county of South Glamorgan was divided into the county of the Vale of Glamorgan and the county and city of Cardiff

Today, these parishes are to be found within either:

the modern County and City of Cardiff
the modern County and City of Swansea
the modern County Borough of Bridgend
the modern County Borough of Caerphilly
the modern County Borough of Merthyr Tydfil
the modern County Borough of Neath Port Talbot
the modern County Borough of Rhondda Cynon Taf
the county of the Vale of Glamorgan
