History Of Margam Castle

Margam Castle, a grand Victorian-era country house, stands as a testament to the rich history of Margam, Port Talbot, Wales. Built over a decade from 1830 to 1840, the castle's site has been occupied for over 4,000 years. From the 11th century until the dissolution of the monasteries, it served as an abbey, adding a layer of historical significance to its already impressive architecture.
Although called a "castle,” it is actually a large, comfortable country house. It was one of many "mock" castles built in the 19th century during the Gothic Revival.

After making a Grand Tour of Europe as a young man, Talbot returned to south Wales, and from 1830, he set about redeveloping the family estate at Margam. The new castle was designed in a Tudor Gothic style by the architect Thomas Hopper (1776–1856), while Edward Haycock Snr (1790–1870) was a supervisory architect and designed parts of the interior-exterior of the house, the stables, terraces, and lodges. Talbot also took a keen interest in the project, encouraging his architects to borrow elements from Lacock Abbey in Wiltshire (ancestral home of the Talbots and home to his cousin William Henry Fox Talbot) and Melbury House in Dorset (home of his mother's family, the Fox-Strangways, Earls of Ilchester).

William Henry Fox Talbot was a frequent visitor to Margam, and the castle featured as an image in some of his early photographic experiments. Margam's links with photography include the location of the earliest known Welsh photograph, a daguerreotype of the castle taken on 9 March 1841 by the Reverend Calvert Richard Jones.
After the death of Emily Charlotte Talbot, the daughter of its first owner, the castle passed to her nephew and continued to be used by the Talbot family until 1941, when it was sold. David Evans-Bevan, who bought it, found it too large to live in but could not find any public organisation interested in taking it on, and it fell into disrepair. It belonged to the local authority for many years but was closed to the public. In 1977, a fire caused substantial damage, and it was only after this that a restoration project began in earnest.
