Old Barry Village

Old Barry Village had medieval roots, originating from the Norman conquest of south Wales and their subsequent settlement. The village took its name from St Baruc ("Sant Barrwg") to whom the adjacent island was dedicated. By the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, the village had its own port, church and castle. However, the Black Death had a devastating impact on the settlement in the fourteenth century, and it was three hundred years before the population recovered.

With industrialisation and the development of Barry as an important port and docklands, the settlement rapidly grew into a town by the end of the nineteenth century.
