The local area guide to living in Llantrisant

The “Parish of the Three Saints” lies in the Ely Valley, along the River Ely and Afon Clun, in the historical county of Glamorgan. Today, known as the county borough of Rhondda Cynon Taf, the geographical area is typical of the rocky green mountains and hills of South Wales.

Llantrisant Common and Pastures is home to several rare plant species and a healthy population of birds and mammals typical of the British Isles. Adding to the town’s unique, rich and charming character are its quaint cobblestone streets, whitewash and stone houses, and central green space, nestled into the surrounding hills with a generous scatter of green trees and shrubbery.

Inhabited for millennia, the area that is now the ward and town of Llantrisant has been an actual settlement since at least the 6th century and has historically been a place of some significance. Among its interesting sites and excavations are two Bronze Age burial grounds, the Bronze Age standing stone in Miskin, the Iron Age hillfort Caerau, the ruins of Richard de Clare’s Norman style Llantrisant Castle from 1246 (prior to that, a wooden fortress), Llantrisant Parish Church from 1096, and Y Billy Wynt, a stone windmill from the 13th century and still standing on the town’s highest point. The British Royal Mint is also in Llantrisant, the museums of which are open for a visit.

Information about the local residents

Llantrisant Town has a population of 4,876, though the figure reaches 15,313 across the wider ward, which includes the small villages in the valleys and hills to the north.

Across the whole parish, a large number of the workforce is occupied as Professionals, but after that there is a varied, roughly even mix across many occupations. The vast majority of the population is of English, Welsh, Scottish, Northern Irish, British descent, and the ward’s population density is about 5 persons per hectare.

Llantrisant Town ranks better than 92% of the rest of Wales for standard of living. The town is very active with sports, community activities and local culture, and is an excellent place to call home for families, single professionals or retired couples.

Pontyclun is the nearest train station, only three miles away from the town, and there are several bus routes including some that will take you to Cardiff in 35-45 minutes.

Local shops

Llantrisant is full of unique independent shops and has a great pub culture, with the town favourites being The New Inn, the Wheatsheaf Rooms and the Cross Keys Hotel.
