Maesteg, rising dramatically from the coastal plain, are the mountains and valleys of the Heritage Hills and at their heart, dominated by its spectacular Town Hall, is the ancient market town of Maesteg standing at the head of the Llynfi valley. The historic Town Hall has been re-furbished and now hosts a wide variety of live performances. Maestegs origins can be traced back to the establishment of iron making in the late 1820s. Concurrently with the building of the Maesteg Ironworks, the Duffryn Llynfi and Porthcawl horse drawn railway was constructed between the town and the docks at Porthcawl. Remnants of the track can still be seen on the harbour side at Porthcawl. Some ten years later the Cambrian Iron and Spelter Company set up a second ironworks at Maesteg, which after changes of ownership, became known as Llynfi Works. The necessary coal and iron-stone were obtained mainly from levels in the hills surrounding the town.
The most important benefactor to the town was Dr. John Bowring (1792-1872) who was well known nationally for his skills as a linguist and for his radical political views. He was elected to Parliament as MP for Bolton in 1841 and became associated with the iron industry in Maesteg in 1843. As a measure of the influence of the MP, part of the Maesteg district was known as Bowrington for a number of years in the middle of the nineteenth century. The name has been revived today in the Bowrington Arcade at the corner of Neath Road and Llynfi Road. In 1844 Bowring invested heavily in the Cambrian iron and Spelter Works, which he renamed the Llynfi Iron Works. Despite fluctuating prosperity and periods of inactivity, iron remained the staple local industry for fifty years.
By 1847, Bowring and the company were in financial difficulty. The works made a loss on the years accounts, and wages were cut by 10% which in turn led to a strike, and closure of the forges. By 1848, Bowrings five-year adventure in the iron trade led to a financial disaster. Fortunately Bowring was offered the consulship at Canton, China, by the Foreign Secretary, Lord Palmeston and by January 1849 he sailed for China. He was knighted in 1854 and went on to become Governor of Hong Kong (1854 1859.) During his period as Governor, he enlarged the colony and established important commercial links with the Kingdom of Siam. Bowring left behind a larger iron works, a larger settlement and a collection of street and place names in the Valley. Today only John Street in Nantyffyllon (named after Bowring) and Charles Row in Maesteg (named after his brother) remain to recall his days in the district. The name Bowrington had given way to Maesteg by the 1870s. Bowrington Street became Commercial Street and Upper Bowrington became part of Nantyffyllon.
