History[edit | edit source]
LLANVIHANGEL-KILFARGEN (LLANVIHANGEL-CIL-FARGEN), a parish, in the union of LLANDILO-VAWR, lower division of the hundred of CATHINOG, county of CARMARTHEN, SOUTH WALES, 4 miles (W.N.W.) from Llandilo-Vawr. This place is situated about 1½ miles to the north of the road leading from Gloucester to Carmarthen. It is one of the smallest parishes in the county, comprising only 514 acres, of which about 185 are arable, 312 pasture, and the rest woodland, and containing but a few respectable farm-houses, with some cottages for labourers. The surface is hilly, and the scenery characterised rather by pleasing rural simplicity, than by any strong features of picturesque or romantic beauty; Kiddery hill skirts the parish on the west, and a brook of the same name, with another called Rhyd-y-wrach, runs through it. The church, dedicated to St. Michael, is a small plain edifice, rebuilt about the year 1822, at the sole expense of the Rev. Thomas Beynon, a former rector.
