Port Talbot

Three miles distant is Margam Park, the seat of C. R. M. Talbot, Esq., M.P., the descendant of the Mansells. Here is an orangery, 327 feet by 81 which contains the produce of a cargo from Holland intended for Queen Mary, but wrecked here in 1694. A bay tree, 60 feet high, and 45 in diameter, spread, and a magnificent forest of oak trees, for which the Government, in 1800 offered £40,000.
