Sigingstone is a small hamlet in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales.

It mainly consists of residential housing and two small working farms. There are two roads - one leading to the two nearby towns Llantwit Major and Cowbridge, and the other to Llanmihangel. It also has a 19th-century public house, called the Victoria Inn.

The village name is alternatively spelled "Sigginstone". This spelling is still used locally.[1]

Llandow Air Disaster[edit]

The Victoria Inn

The village was the location of the 1950 Llandow Air Disaster when an Avro 689 Tudor V crashed killing 80. The aircraft was on its final approach to the nearby Llandow aerodrome.
