Glamorgan Case Study

This case study is the result of a partnership between the Parliamentary Archives, Parliamentary Outreach, Glamorgan Archives and Grangetown Local History Society. It is part of the Connecting with Communities project which was launched in July 2009.

The Communities project explores the impact of Parliament on local communities and investigates how people have influenced Parliament.  We do this by researching material held in the Parliamentary Archives at Westminster, as well as records held locally by regional archives.

This project looks at the impact that the building and development of Cardiff Docks had on the local area and the people living there.
