Llangynderyn



I did the watercolour of Llangynderyn Church today. I had visited it earlier this week. The village is in the Gwendraeth Valley some 5 - 6 miles South of Carmarthen.  It  gets its name from the wandering British saint Cyndeyrn, to whom the church is dedicated. 


The Village is famous for having successfully fought off attempts to dam and flood the valley in the 1960's, a rare achievement. There is still a circular village pound opposite the Church where stray animals were once placed.  I doubt it has seen much use in the last 100 years. A lovely village and we should be grateful for the efforts of those who managed to save it.
