Abercraf Ward

Abercraf (Confluence of the watercourses Craf and the Tawe: ‘Craf’ is an old Welsh word for ‘garlic’) is located at the district’s northern boundary. It is said that the professional ventures of the industrialist Daniel Harpur,  who reputedly anglicised the name Abercraf to Abercrave, united the three hamlets of Pentre Lamb, Henneuadd and Pantycwrt to become collectively known as Abercrave.
