History[edit | edit source]

LLANDILO-ABERCOWAN (LLANDEILO-ABER-CYWYN), a parish, in the higher division of the hundred of DERLLYS, county of CARMARTHEN, SOUTH WALES, 8 miles (S.W. by W.) from Carmarthen. This parish derives its name from the dedication of its church to St. Teilo, and its distinguishing adjunct from its situation on the Cywyn, near the influx of that stream into the Tâf, by the estuary of which latter river, expanding into Carmarthen bay, it is bounded on the south-west. The turnpike-road leading from Carmarthen to St. Clear's passes through the village. The church is not remarkable for any architectural details, but is pleasantly situated on the eastern bank of the river Cywyn. Adjoining the churchyard was anciently an hospital, called the Pilgrim's Lodge; but no particulars, either of its foundation or its history, are recorded, and the building has long been appropriated to other uses.[1]
