Briton Ferry

Neath Port Talbot

Briton Ferry is a town in Neath Port Talbot, Wales, on the mouth of the River Neath, where it enters Swansea Bay. Remains of the ancient Iron Age hill forts are on Warren Hill and John Mills’s sculpture, The Crossing, symbolises the town’s industrial and maritime history. Rhoddfa Clarke is the inclined part of the South Wales Mineral Railway, the lowest part of which now forms Jersey Park. The park gives access to Craig y Darren Woods and offers views of the town and Swansea Bay.

The footfall at Briton Ferry station in 2018-2019 was 35,256.
