Registered as a UK Charity No. 1082811
The Ogmore Valley is situated 8 miles north of Bridgend, nestled at the foot of the Bwlch-y-clawdd mountain, the highest peak in the County of Glamorgan. It was a typical hillside farming community until c.1865, when the BROGDENS of Tondu discovered the Black Gold they were looking for to fire their brick making furnaces at Tondu.
The Valley's tortured history form that point mirrors many other South Wales Mining communities, in tragedy, triumph and heartache, the Valley is rich in history and heritage and has produced many famous and fine sons and daughters, that have not only done themselves proud but also the Valley.
There are many stories to tell of heroism, tragedy, sporting conquests and not a little humour, and so it was with the goal of recording this fine heritage for the future generations of this Proud Valley, that The Ogmore Valley Local History and Heritage Society was formed in 1999 to ensure that the Ogmore Valley's proud and unique place in history would not simply be a dim and distant memory for our children's children.
