History

LLANVIHANGEL-TÀLYLLYN (LLAN-FIHANGEL-TÀL-Y-LLYN), a parish, in the hundred of Tàlgarth, union and county of Brecknock, South Wales, 4½ miles (E.) from Brecknock. It derives its name from the dedication of its church to St. Michael, and its distinguishing adjunct from its situation at the head or north-western extremity of the beautiful lake called Llangorse Pool, or Llyn Savaddan. The church is an ancient structure, consisting of a nave and chancel, with a massive square tower at the west end; it is beautifully situated at the extremity of the lake, and kept in good repair. There is a place of worship for Calvinistic Methodists, in which a Sunday school is held.[1]
