Mid Glamorgan Travel Guide: 247 reviews and 867 photos

Mid Glamorgan is a preserved county (current areas used in Wales for ceremonial purposes), from 1974 until 1996, it was also an administrative county, with a county council. Mid Glamorgan and its component districts were abolished in 1996 and the area split.

The Mid-Glamorgan (County Council 1974-1996) coat of arms consists of three red chevrons and Tudor rose on gold and was taken from the previous arms of the predecessor Glamorgan County Council. The clarions added to the old arms were the badges of the de Clare family. The crest was a Welsh dragon among flames symbolic of the phoenix-like rebirth of the area from the ashes of heavy industry. The supporters were a coalminer and a factory worker.

    That looks like a huge old castle -- with a leaning tower off to the right, I believe.
