LLANMIHANGEL-RHÔSYCORN (LLAN-VIHANGEL-RHÔS-Y-CORN), a parish, in the union of LAMPETER, higher division of the hundred of CATHINOG, county of CARMARTHEN, SOUTH WALES, 12 miles (N.E.) from Carmarthen. It is situated in the northern part of the county, and comprehends, in addition to a considerable portion of mountainous and waste land, a large tract of inclosed arable and pasture. The surrounding scenery is distinguished by features rather of a bold and striking character than of pleasing and picturesque appearance; and the views from the higher grounds embrace extensive, and in some cases interesting, prospects. A woolen manufacture is carried on upon a limited scale, affording employment to a small number of persons. The living is annexed to the vicarage of Llanllwny; the church is a small edifice, undistinguished by any architectural details; and occupies a dreary elevated position, remote from all habitations. There is a place of worship for the Independents.
