Birchgrove (Y Gellifedw) is a community and large village in the City and County of Swansea. The village is situated roughly 6 miles from the centre of Swansea, between the flood plain of the River Tawe and Mynydd Drummau, on the Neath Port Talbot border. The community of Birchgrove includes the village of Birchgrove, Lon-Las and parts of Glais. A populations of around 5,807, however this is rapidly increasing with the construction of many new homes in and around the area.
From an early date to the beginning of the 19th Century, coal mining played an important role in Birchgrove. And it was because of the demand for coal that a pit was sunk in Birchgrove. It was sunk in 1845 and is known locally as 'Old Pit'. As a result of prosperity, two further pits were sunk, namely 'Sisters Pit' and 'Brothers Pit' near to Glais. The colliery closed in 1931.
The countryside surrounding Birchgrove is scattered with pre-historic sites.
