Sheeping Moors  Glamorgan


The location is that marked on the OS First Series map as "Shipping Moors". The area was described by the 1881 census as "land common to St Andrew and Cadoxton juxta Barry", putting it into this general vicinity. An article in the Transactions of the Glamorgan Local History Society speaks of a scheme "to drain the Cadoxton Sheeping Moors which had been common land, to convert it into meadow and to erect a flour mill" (vol. 24 (1980), pp. 44-5; on-line via Welsh Journals On-line,, accessed 22/1/2011), so the area was marshland.
