Neath Abbey (c) Vist Wales

Neath Abbey was founded in 1130 by Richard de Granville and was used by Savigniac monks from Western Normandy. By 1730 much of the Abbey was being used for Copper smelting as industry started to impose on South Wales.

Today, Neath Abbey is a representation of its early days and is a very peaceful and historical site to visit.
