The Borough of Lliw Valley (Welsh: Dyffryn Lliw) was one of the four local government districts of West Glamorgan, Wales from 1974 to 1996. It was formed by the merger of the Llwchwr urban district and Pontardawe Rural District, under the Local Government Act 1972.
It was abolished in 1996, with part of its area becoming part of the new Swansea unitary authority, and part becoming part of Neath Port Talbot unitary authority.

Famous quotes containing the word valley:
“As I went forth early on a still and frosty morning, the trees looked like airy creatures of darkness caught napping; on this side huddled together, with their gray hairs streaming, in a secluded valley which the sun had not penetrated; on that, hurrying off in Indian file along some watercourse, while the shrubs and grasses, like elves and fairies of the night, sought to hide their diminished heads in the snow.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
