Rhos, Neath Port Talbot

Rhos is a village in Neath Port Talbot county borough, Wales, UK.

It is located between Neath and Pontardawe in the Swansea Valley. Like most other villages, Rhos has seen phases of major building development within its boundaries bringing with it an influx of new residents to a community historically known for its own particular identity. However, these changes have not undermined the life or character of the village. Indeed, in many respects the social and cultural life has been enriched and Rhos, to a great extent, has maintained its own particular identity.
