Llantrisant Audio Trail


This fascinating medieval town high on a hill has many historic secrets to reveal. Did you know the first cremation took place here? It was of a baby and was conducted by a druid. The unfortunate King Edward II was imprisoned here and the longbowmen who won the Battle of Crecy came from this area too. An historic church, medieval market and workhouses for the poor add to the story of this ancient place.
