LLANGASTY-TÀLYLLYN (LLAN-GASTY-TÀL-Y-LLYN), a parish, in the hundred of Pencelly, union and county of Brecknock, South Wales, 5½ miles (E. S. E.) from Brecknock. The name of this parish is derived from the dedication of its church to St. Gasty, or Gastayn, an eminent British saint. At the distance of rather more than half a mile from the western extremity of the lake of Savaddan, or Llangorse Merethe is the beautiful village of Llanvihangel-Tàlyllyn. The church, beautifully situated on the margin of the lake, is a dark, ancient, and decayed edifice, with a tower of more modern erection, containing four bells.[1]
