CAPEL-COELBREN, a chapelry in Ystradgynlas parish, Brecon; on the river Llech, 5 miles NNW of Glyn-Neath railway station, and 12 NNE of Neath. The scenery is picturesque, and borrows grandeur from the Cribarth mountain. The Llech makes a noble fall of 100 feet. Some erect coal trees, of the sigillaria class, have been found in the bed of the stream. There are remains of a Roman road.[1]
