Llech Fraith  Carmarthenshire

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Llech Fraith like this:

LLECHFRAITH AND LLECHGRON, two hamlets in Llanegwad parish, Carmarthenshire; 7½ miles E of Carmarthen. Real property of Llechfraith with Miros, £1,553; of Llechgron, £1,428. Pop. of the two hamlets, 204 and 254.

The location is at the junction of the Cloidach and Cothi rivers, about a mile to the north west of Llanegwad church. The only basis for this location within the parish is this statement: "Llechfraith. A spot at the confluence of the rivers Cloidach and Cothi is said to have been the site of a chapel" (http://www.llanegwad-carmarthen.co.uk/llanegwadblurb.htm, accessed 14 Nov 2011), so more authoritative information would be welcome. Note that the chuch marked on the map here is Holy Trinity, built in the nineteenth century as a chapel of ease to Llanegwad and with no apparent association with the name "Llech Fraith". Additional information about this locality is available for Llanegwad
