situated on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park
and is surrounded by beautiful rolling hills and pasture with
stunning views towards the Black Mountain. The main business is
agriculture but there are several small and medium sized businesses
here including a builders merchant and an agricultural feed and
supply shop. The beautiful countryside surrounding the village
and its nearness to the Brecon Beacons makes it a draw for tourists.

Capel Gwynfe is a small village
about 3 miles to the south and west of Llangadog with a picturesque
church dating from 1898 and a 19th Century church hall. The area
primarily consists of agricultural lands and its location in the
foothills of the Brecon Beacons make it an ideal starting point
for walkers and cyclists. It was voted Village of the Year for
Carmarthenshire in 2004. In additon to this website, the villagers

south of Llangadog perched on the hillside overlooking the Towy
flood plain. Bethlehem Hall is renowned for stamping cards at
Christmas time and hundreds of people each year bring their
cards to be stamped with the Bethlehem stamp. Behind the village
is Garn Goch which is a bracken covered hillside which turns
a glorious red in Autumn and Winter and is the site of an Iron
Age Hill fort.
MEETING TO DISCUSS BROADBAND IN THIS AREA

The meeting will be held at Pontargothi Memorial Hall on Thursday 24th January from 5-6 pm.

Wanted – Church Organist
St Cadog’s Church Llangadog
Our organist, who had played for us for many years, has had to retire. At the moment we are using discs for our hymns but we have a wonderful, modern organ, which loves to be used and gives out a great sound in our beautiful church. We would like to have a regular organist/s to play for us at Sunday services and on special occasions. We have a monthly Communion Service and would particularly like to have the organ played then. Our regular services are at 9.30am.
