Situated in the middle of the Vale of Glamorgan just four and a half miles south-west of Cowbridge is the small coastal town of Llantwit Major, it has often been called "the most beautiful of places"and is a really nice old town

There are some nice things to explore in and around the town including a medieval town hall the ruins of a manor house, and a historic church as well as the foundations of a Roman Villa.

    The town must have been really booming in the mid seventeenth century when the innkeeper of the Old Swan Inn was allowed to produce his own brass coins. Do you know if any of those old coins still exist anywhere?
