LLANGENNECH (LLAN-GENNECH), a parish, in the union of LLANELLY, hundred of CARNAWLLON, county of CARMARTHEN, SOUTH WALES, 4 miles (E.N.E.) from Llanelly. This parish is situated on the western margin of the river Loughor, by which it is separated from the county of Glamorgan; and is intersected by the rivulet called Morlais, a tributary to that stream, and also by the turnpike-road from Swansea to Llanelly. The surface is varied; the lands for the greater part are inclosed and cultivated, and the soil is generally fertile. Coal of very superior quality, which obtains a high price in the London market, is found in the parish; and works upon an extensive scale have been established by the Llangennech Coal Company. The church is dedicated to St. Gwynog. There are places of worship for Independents and the Baptists.
