The parish is pleasantly situated on the river Teivy, over which the turnpike-road is continued by means of a handsome stone bridge. The surrounding scenery is pleasantly diversified, and in some parts highly picturesque; and the soil, though varying in different parts, is in general fertile. The church, dedicated to St. Michael, is situated on an eminence on the southern bank of the Teivy. The chapel of Pencader has been in ruins for nearly a century, but the cemetery is still entire. There are places of worship for Calvinistic Methodists, Baptists, and Independents.
