This parish, the name of which signifies the church of the five saints, is traversed on the east by the turnpike road leading from Carmarthen to Lampeter, and is intersected by the small river Guilly. It was formerly a chapelry in the parish of Aberguilly; from which it was separated by act of parliament; and comprises a large tract of land, by far the greater part inclosed and in a good state of cultivation. The surrounding scenery is pleasantly diversified, but not distinguished by any peculiarity of features; and the views of the adjacent country are interesting and extensive. There are three Sunday schools, one belonging to the Established Church, and the others respectively to Baptists and Calvinist Methodists.
