Nantgarw is a village in the county borough of Rhondda Cynon Taf, Wales, near Cardiff.From an electoral and administrative perspective Nantgarw falls within the ward of Taffs Well, a village some 2.5 miles south, but historically fell within the boundaries of Caerphilly, which is a major town located less than 2.5 miles to the east.The original village was destroyed by the development of the A470 trunk road, which was situated at the location of the current Nantgarw/A468 junction. Located close to the A470, Nantgarw is within easy reach of the town of Pontypridd (5.5 miles to the northwest) and Cardiff City centre (around 7.5 miles further south).HistoryNantgarw lies on the River Taff. It is known for its porcelain, produced in between 1813-1814, and later between 1817-1820 at the Nantgarw Pottery, commemorated at the China Works Museum.Nantgarw is the home of the Nantgarw tradition of folk dancing.After the building of the Glamorganshire Canal, by the 1841 census of the 300 residents, about 60 owed their living to work associated directly with the canal. But the development of drift mines and the development of the Taff Vale Railway, meant that by 1875 the majority of the villages residents were colliers.
