ABERGUILLY (ABER-GWILI), a parish, in the union of CARMARTHEN, higher division of the hundred of ELVET ... 2 miles (E. by N.) from Carmarthen, on the road to Llandilo-Vawr. The village is pleasantly situated, and the meadows in the neighbourhood are watered by the rivers Towy and Guilly, over which last is a neat substantial stone bridge of three arches. The parish abounds with roofing slate of excellent quality, of which there are two quarries at present open, affording employment to about fifty persons. The church, dedicated to St Maurice, and situated near the bank of the Towy, was made collegiate by Dr Beck, Bishop of St David's, in 1287. The church is a neat plain building, consisting of two aisles, without either tower or steeple. At Llanvihangel-uwch-Guilly is a chapel, formerly a chapel of ease. There are places of worship for Baptists, Independents, and Methodists.
