Neath Port Talbot – Bringing you closer to nature
Neath Port Talbot is located in south Wales and the county stretches from the coast to the borders of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

Like many counties in Wales, Neath Port Talbot has a Roman and Norman influence and there are many heritage sites that provide reminders of this time.
