LLANWINIO (LLAN-WYNO), a parish, comprising the Eastern and Western divisions, in the lower division of the hundred of DERLLYS, union and county of CARMARTHEN, SOUTH WALES, 13 miles (W.N.W.) from Carmarthen. This parish is situated near the western extremity of the county, on the border of Pembrokeshire, and comprises a large tract of lamd, the greater portion inclosed and cultivated; it is watered by the small river Avon Gynin. The surrounding country is finely diversified, and the distant views comprehend some fine combinations of mountain scenery and richly luxuriant pasture lands in the vicinity; the soil is fertile, and the inhabitants are chiefly employed in agriculture and in the feeding of numerous flocks of sheep. The village is pleasantly situated. The church, dedicated to St. Gwyno, stands near the right bank of the Avon Gynin river; and there are places of worship for Baptists and Calvinistic Methodists, and for another congregation, assuming no other denomination than that of Dissenters.
