BLAENLLYNFI, a quondam borough town in Cathedine parish, Brecon; near Llynsaviddan lake, 7½ miles NW of Crickhowel. Remains stand here, low broken walls and a deep fossé, of a castle which is thought to have been the residence of Prince Hwgan early in the 10th century, and was afterwards the seat of the Norman lord of Welsh Talgarth.
