Glamorgan, a maritime co. of South AYales, bounded
N. by Carmarthen, Brecknock, and Monmouth, E. by
Monmouth and theestuary of the Severn, S. by theBristol
Channel, and AY. by Carmarthen and Carmarthen Bay;
greatest length, N. and S., 28 m.; greatest breadth, E.
and AY., 48 m.; area, 516,959 ac., pop. 511,433. Glamor-
gan is, commercially, the most important co. in AYales,
chiefly owing to its great mineral resources, the fertility
of its soil, and the extent and convenience of its seaboard.
The surface of the co. in the N. is mountainous; but
towards the S. it becomes more level, especially in the
fertile expanse known as the
Vale of Glamorgan. It
is watered by various rivers, of which the more im-
portant are the Taff, Taw, Neath, and Rhymney; all
the streams flow S. to the Bristol Channel. Mining is
the principal industry, the co. having one of the largest
coalfields in Britain, while its supply of ironstone and
limestone is said to be inexhaustible. The soil yields
abundant and excellent crops of the usual cereals, and
large quantities of dairy produce are exported. (For
agricultural statistics, see Appendix.) Some of the
largest ironworks in the world are in Glamorgan, not-
ably those at Merthyr Tydfil and Dowlais; and the co.
likewise contains very important copper, tin, and lead
works. Glamorgan comprises 10 hundreds, 166 pars.,
the pari, and mun. bor. of Swansea (2 members), the
greater part of the pari. bor. of Merthyr Tydfil (2 mem-
bers), the Cardiff Boroughs (Cardiff, Cowbridge, and
Llantrisaint—1 member), and the mun. bors. of Aber-
avon, Cardiff, and Neath. It is mostly in the diocese
of Llandaff. For pari, purposes it is divided into 5
divisions, viz.. Eastern, Rhondda, AVestern or Gower,
Mid, and Southern, 1 member for each division.
