In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Navigation like this:

NAVIGATION, a place on the E border of Glamorgan; on the Taff Vale canal and Taff Vale railway, at the junction of the branches to Aberdare, 16½ miles N by W of Cardiff. It took its name from a canal-office here; and it formerly gave name to a railway station here, nowcalled the Aberdare Junction. The country around it is very beautiful.
