LLANGUNNOCK (LLAN-GYNOG), a parish, in the higher division of the hundred of DERLLYS, union and county of CARMARTHEN, SOUTH WALES, 6 miles (S.W. by S.) from Carmarthen. It comprises about 5429 acres of good land, chiefly arable, and has been greatly improved since the year 1806, the greater part of it being now in a good state of cultivation. The surrounding scenery, with few exceptions, is tame and uninteresting, though some of the distant views are picturesque and beautiful. The soil is poor, rocky, and barren, and the chief produce is oats and barley, with a little wheat. The manor of Penryn, which is co-extensive with the parish, contains an ancient family mansion called Cwm, situated in a well-wooded, romantic spot. The church, dedicated to St. Cynog, is a very plain edifice, consisting of two aisles. There are places of worship for Baptists and Independents.
