and all things Welsh





Penderry is the name of an electoral ward and a community in the City and County of Swansea, South Wales.

The electoral ward consists of some or all of the following areas: Penlan, Portmead, Blaen-y-Maes, Fforesthall and Caereithin, in the parliamentary constituency of Swansea East. The ward consists of mainly suburban residential areas. It is bordered by Mynydd-Bach to the east; Cockett and Cwmbwrla to the south; and Kingsbridge, Penllergaer and Llangyfelach to the north.

Penlan is the main area in the ward and is the most well known. The suburban district is set on land high above sea level in the central part of Swansea county.

The headquarters of Swansea's main public transport bus company First Cymru is located here.

Blaenymaes has been funded by the Welsh Assembly for the last 8 years and lack of crime and anti social behavior has really changed the place for the better - with the work of the BPP DEvelopment Trust based at the ARC and the communities first team. There are plenty of things to do these days from going to Spark, youth club, community centre, 104 community house, the new drop in centre, the ARC, penplas family centre and much much more.

Blaenymaes, Portmead and Penplas are in the Penderry Ward and part of Communities First

Blaen-y-Maes consists mainly of council housing. The area gained some notoriety in the early 1990s, when bus services to the area were suspended due to bricks being thrown at them by youths.
