Eisteddfod Historical Map

An illustrated plate produced by the Resolfen Fund raising Committe for the Eisteddfod

The National Eisteddfod visited the Vale of Neath in 1994. Each community in the area established fund raising committees to raise money for the event. Among the items produced for sale centrally by the Eisteddfod was an illustrated historical map of the area. These were quite expensive to buy at the time and were also very attractive. Sadly, Eleanor Harries the well known local soprano and voice coach died recently, and her family have decided to donate one of these maps which was in her possession to the Society. It was decided to place the illustrated historical map in the Community Centre.
