Town of Abbertillery
Abbertillery is a town in the Welsh Valleys with a population of about 18,000. It is located at the junction of the river Tillery and the river Ebbw Fach, approximately 40 miles north of Cardiff and 8 miles south of Brywmawr.
Until 1974, Abbertillery formed the urban district of Abertillery in the then county of Monmouthshire (which in many instances was then considered part of England and not Wales). From 1974 until 1996, it was part of the district of Blaenau Gwent in the new county of Gwent. In 1996, Gwent was abolished as an administrative county, and the district became the county borough of Blaenau Gwent - a unitary authority (within the ceremonial, or preserved, county of Gwent).
