Llangenni  Brecknockshire


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

LLANGENNY, a parochial-chapelry in Crickhowell district, Brecon; at the influx of the Grwyney to the Usk, 1½ mile SE of Crickhowell, and 4 NW of Beaufort r. station. Post town, Crickhowell. Acres, 2,7 83. Real property, £3,269. Pop., 470. Houses, 104. Cwrt-y-Gollen I a chief residence. ...

Paper-making and iron-founding are carried on. A meini-hirion, 13 feet high, is near Cwrt y-Gollen. The living is a p. curacy, annexed to the rectory of Llangattock, in the diocese of St. David's. The church was dedicated to St. Ceneu or Keyne, and there is a well whose waters have the same kind of popular repute as those of St. Keyne's well in Cornwall. A bell, supposed to have belonged to St. Ceneu's oratory, was found near the well in 1809.
