The small electricity substation set back from the west side of High Cross Lane is of historical interest. The inscription above the door is SWEPOC 1930.
SWEPOC (South Wales Electric Power Company) was one of more than 600 electric power companies in the UK that were nationalised into twelve Area Boards under the terms of the Electricity Act 1947. SWEPOC became part of SWALEB (South Wales Electricity Board), which was renamed SWALEC (South Wales Electricity) in 1990.
