About Loughor, Swansea
Loughor (Welsh: Casllwchwr) is a town in the City and County of Swansea, Wales, within the historic county boundaries of Glamorgan, Wales. It lies on the estuary of the River Loughor. In 2014, it was rated one of the most attractive postcode areas to live in Wales.
The town was home to the Roman fort of Leucarum, over which the Norman Loughor Castle was built in 1106. Loughor developed around the castle.
It later grew as a port, while in the early twentieth century large tin and steel works were the main industries. Loughor is now mostly a commuter town for Swansea and Llanelli via the Loughor Bridge and has merged with the neighbouring town of Gorseinon.
James Henry Govier (1910- 1974) the British painter, etcher and engraver of the Swansea School, produced a number of images of Loughor, he lived at Gorseinon and has work in the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery at Swansea, the National Museum of Wales, the National Library of Wales, and in several other national collections.
