I B R ITDG END. SOLTH WALir RAILWAY. AT a PUBLIC MEETING of the Inhabitants of the Town of Bridgend and its Neighbourhood, in the County of GLAMORGAN, held in the Town Hall, at BRIDGEND, on MONDAY, the Joih day of DEOEMHER, 1845, for the purpose of taking into cousideiation the expediency of Memorialising the Directors of the South Wales Railway Company in favour of the original line of Railway to the south of Bridgend, and against the re- cently-proposed line of deviation intended to pass to the noith of Bridgend. Yiscouut ADAUK, M.P., in the Chair. It was proposed by W. Lewis. Esq., seconded by Mr. W. Edwards, and unanimously resolved, That this Meeting has learnt with great regret and apprehension that it is in the contemplation of the South Wales Railway Company to apply to Parliament for an Act to enable them to abandon that part of their line of Railway which lies to the South of Bridgend, and to substitute in lieu thereof a line to the north of the Town. Proposed by the Rev. H. L. Blosse, seconded by A. Verity, Esq., and unanimously resolved, That in the opinion of this Meeting the proposed de- viation would not only be highly prejudicial to the Agricultural, Mining, and Commercial interests of this part of the County, and particularly of Bridgend and its Neighbourhood, but would not furnish that accommoda- tion to the public at large which the original Coast line as Beleeted by Mr. Brunei and sanctioned by the Legisla- ture would have afforded, and which it is one great object of a grand arterial Railway intended to connect the Metropolis with the Southern Conuties of the Princi- pality and Ireland to supply. Proposed by W. Lewellin, Esq., seconded by S. Cox, Esq., and unanimously resolved, That a Memorial to the Directors of the South Wales Railway Company be prepared and forwarded froi,t this Meeting, directing their attention to the great superiority of the line originally determined upon over the line of deviation now proposed, and urging the Directors to carry out their original Plan, and to abandon the proposed line of deviation. Proposed by the Rev. Robert Knight, seconded by R. C. N. Carrie, Esq., and unanimously resolved, That the Memorial now read be adopted by the Meeting, and that Viscount Adare be requested to sign the same on behalf of the Meeting, and to forward it to the Directors of the South Wales Railway Company A DARE, Chairman. Moved by Mr. Phillip Price, seconded by S. Cox, Esq., and carried by acclamation, That the thanks of the Meeting be given to Viscount Adare, for his attendance here this day as Chairman of the Meeting, and for his conduct in the Chair. THE MEMORIAL, To the Directors of the South Wales Railway Company. The Memorial of the Landowners, Gentrv Tradesmen, Farmers, and others, inhabitants of the Town of Bridgend and its neighbour- hood, in the County of Glamorgan,0 unani- mously agreed to at a Public Meeting held pursuant to public advertisement at the Town Hall, at Bridgend, on Monday, the 15th day of December, 1845, Sheiveth, That your Memorialists have learnt with great regret and apprehension that it is in the contemplation of the South Wales Railway Company to apply to Parliament in the ensuing Session for an Act to authorize them, amongst other things, to abandon that part of their Railway (for which they obtained an Act in the last Session) which extends from or from near to a place called Bryn y Gwynnon, through or near to Pencoed, Treose, Ewenny, Merthyrmawr, Nottage, Cornelly, and Kenfig, (passing to the South of the Town of Bridgend) to Margam Moors, and to substitute in lieu thereof a line intended to pass near Trebryn, Coity, and Aber- kenfig, to the North of the said Town of Bridgend. That the line originally proposed by Mr. Brunei, and now sanctioned by the legislature, would pass through or immediately border upon a rich and important agricul- tural district, extending from the present mail-coach road to the coast, and would afford the means of transit for the population and produce of that district (a great por- tion of which produce is now shipped coastwise) to the various towns and iron and other works on or near to the line of railway while the deviation now contemplated would, if adopted, afford no such accommodation to the distiict iu question. That the original line which your Memorialists believe received the sanction of all the owners of lands through which it was intended to pass, would traverse for several miles a tract of limestone highly valuable for agricultural, commercial, and building purposes, which the proposed line of deviation leaves almost if not altogether un- touched. That the latter line, although passing through a por- tion of the Mineral Basin of South Wales, will not, in the opinion of practical men experienced in mining ope- rations, on that account afford any additional advantages to the owners and lessees of minerals in the neighbour- hood, inasmuch as it will necessarily pass through or near Aberkenfig, three miles to the North of Bridgend, where the Valleys of the Ogmores, the Garw, and the Llynvi, which extend Northwards into the very heart of the Mineral Basin of South Wales, converge at so high a level that the several railways intended to be made down those Valleys (the surveys for which have already been completed and deposited preparatory to application to Parliament) can only be brought to form ajunction with such new line, either by a steep ascending gradient, or by forming them at a considerable height above the level of the several streams throughout their whole length, thereby causing a serious additional and lasting expense to all who may engage in developing the vast resources of that part of the Mineral Basin intersected by those Valleys—a district comprising upwards of fifty square miles. That the forming a main line of railway through a mineral district is unsafe, on account of the old workings which are always to be found therein, and which abound in this locality, and is also highly prejudicial to the les- sees of the minerals under the lands over which it passes, inasmuch as it forms a barrier to the prosecution of the workings beneath, and either altogether prevents the minerals on one side from being rendered available, or involves the necessity of a great increased expense to obtain them. That your Memorialists are informed and believe that the gradients and curves of the proposed line of deviation are such as to be highly objectionable in a main trunk railway, which is intended to form the direct medium of communication between the Metropolis, the Southern Counties of the Principality, and Ireland. That the Coast line, though nearly two miles longer in point of distance, is preferable to that now proposed for the following additional reasons, viz :—because it passes through a country almost perfectly level, and the expense of making it would be comparatively low, be- cause there would be no considerable curves upon it;- because it could be worked at a much less cost, and tra. versed at a much more rapid rate, and notwithstanding its greater length, in less time than the proposed line and because it would afford that medium of communica- tion between the Metropolis and the Coast, which is un- derstood to have been one great object in its original selection. That in the opinion of your Memorialists the affording a ready means of communication between populous and important towns, is an object most desirable to be attained in the formation of any railway, and second only to that of supplying to the public at large the shortest connecting line between the two termini; and that Bridgend from its rapidly increasing population and from its position in the immediate neighbourhood of the largest mineral basin in the United Kingdom and near the centre of the county, bids fair to become one of its most flourishing and important towns, and is there- fore not undeserving of your attention and of the esta- blishment of a station within as short a distance as is com- patible with the other public objects of so great an undertaking. ° That if the coast line as originally proposed be adopted the station which would be required for the accomoda- tion of Bridgend and ita neighbourhood, would neces- sarily be made at the distance of about a mile to the south of the town but your Memorialists are apprehen- sive that if the proposed alteration be carried out, no station would be made nearer than Aberkenfig, a distance of three miles to the north of the town. Your Memorialists therefore respectfully request youi attentive consideration of the foregoing facts, and earnestly hope that in the carrying out a great National undertak- ing like the South Wales Railway, in which so man) momentous interests are involved—those connected with the agricultural and mineral resources of the first count) in the P/lncipality, will meet with that attention which their importance merits. ficiirr.s.
