Community Council area is situated on the east side of the river Tywi, opposite
the town of Carmarthen. Geographically it covers some 2340 hectares, from near
Capel Dewi at the northern end to Cwmffrwd in the south and almost to
Llanddarog in the east. It includes the villages and hamlets of Pensarn, Login,
Pibwrlwyd, Llangunnor and Nantycaws. According to the 2011 National Census, the
Council represents a population of approximately 2,381 of which 48% declared
they are Welsh speaking.
recent years the area has been essentially transformed from a traditional rural
society to a modern residential and urban economy. The village of Pensarn has
experienced a number of strategic developments that include the east and west
Carmarthen by-pass roads, the location of major ‘out of town’ retail parks,
supermarkets and a number of business outlets. The Carmarthen railway station
is situated within the Council area as well as the headquarters of the
Dyfed-Powys Police. The main residential
communities are in the villages of Llangunnor and Nantycaws, which have seen
considerable population growth over the past twenty-five years and have now
become popular commuter and retirement bases. Nantycaws also accommodates a
major waste management centre for West Wales.
We would like to encourage everybody living, visiting or has roots in the Llangunnor area to input some details on this site. Just think how you can share your experiences, news, history and general information with everyone!
