St Illtyd's parish church

Newcastle is an ancient parish in Glamorgan that forms the western half of the town of Bridgend. The area includes the medieval Newcastle Castle.


The parish covers extensive areas of the town west of the River Ogmore, but the original village is located immediately west of Bridgend town centre and either side of Park Street.

On Newcastle Hill overlooking the town is Newcastle's parish church, St Illtyds, which is a Grade II* listed building originating in the 14th-century.[1] The remains of Newcastle Castle are also at the top of Newcastle Hill, believed to date from 1106.

The area also includes Bridgend's rugby union stadium, the Brewery Field.
