Llangunnor Network has been set for two principle reasons:
- Preserve the history of the parish
- Promote and support the community
The history of Llangunnor is something that we believe should be recorded and preserved for future generations. Walking around the parish today it would be difficult to see past the modern developments but it is hoped that we can enlighten you as to the Llangunnor of the past.
An entry for Llangunnor on Wikipedia states that:
"Llangynnwr is a community located in Carmarthenshire, Wales. It is the southern suburb of Carmarthen town. It consists mainly of typical suburban housing, with a small shop and a Primary school. Adjoining to it is Pensarn, which is a major out of town shopping district for the local populace in Carmarthen and the surrounding area."
Navigation of the site can be found to the left, each link will take you to the relevant section of the site. All pages have a link to our contact form which can be used if you have any suggestions or experience any problems while visiting our site.
We are looking for any old photos of the Llangunnor area, in particular of Pensarn prior to the road developments in the early 1980's. We would like to be able to preserve the history of the parish so that future residents will know about the "Square and Compass" public house, the "Belle Vue" hotel, New-cwm-last farm, and those areas of the community no longer in existence.
Any old stories from the area would also be welcome, if you are able to assist please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
The site would also like to promote community events and organisations, the easiest way to achieve this aim would be to set up pages for the various groups that have a connection to Llangunnor. We will create and maintain the pages only asking you to provide us with details of your organisation.
Ideally giving some details about what the group does and when it meets and how residents can get involved and contact the group, we would hope that this would generate more publicity for the group.
