Heritage

The parish church is a Grade II* listed building dedicated to St Egwad. The tower, probably the earliest part, dates from about 1400. The north aisle was added in the 16th century. The building was restored in 1861, when further windows were added.[2] A previous church was sited further up the valley, the only sign of which is the name of a farm in the area, Bryn-Yr-Eglwys ("Hill of the Church").

In 1844 Llanfynydd was a parish of 11,000 acres and 1,358 inhabitants in Cathinog Hundred. By 1929 the population was down to 581.[3]

Wind farm protest

In July 2004 – in protest over plans to erect a wind farm nearby – the residents of Llanfynydd renamed their village Llanhyfryddawellehynafolybarcudprindanfygythiadtrienusyllafnauole ("lovely silent church, ancient place of the rare kite under wretched threat from misplaced blades") for the space of one week.[4]

The name was chosen to reflect the villagers' concern that the wind farm would threaten three endangered[citation needed] species of bird – the (red kite, the curlew, and the skylark) – and to generate publicity for their cause by being longer than the previously longest placename in the UK: that of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch in Anglesey.

The protest went ahead despite assurances from the local council and from the Spanish-owned developers Gamesa Energy UK (part of Gamesa Corporación Tecnológica) that the single wind turbine planned was intended merely as a test to see how suitable the area might be for wind turbines in the future.

Worship

Parish registers exist from 1692. The parish also has several chapels.[3]

Education

Rev. D. Jones established a day school in Llanfynydd in 1738, for 20 children.[3]

The number of pupils at the school had fallen to 11 by September 2013, with a deficit of £50,000, and Carmarthenshire Council warned that the school would close if numbers fell below 10.[5]

However, in December 2014 the BBC reported that the school, though it had no pupils, could not be closed until Carmarthenshire County Council had held a consultation and a vote on the issue.[6]

Notable people

Thomas Rees, Congregational minister and historian of nonconformity, was born at Pen Pontbren, Llanfynydd, on 13 December 1815. He was twice elected to chair the Union of Welsh Independents.[7]
