Towy  Carmarthenshire


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

TOWY (The), a river of South Wales; rising under Tregaron hill, in the NE of Cardigan; and running about 65 miles, south-south-westward, past Moel-Esgob, Va-nog, Ystrad-Ffin, Llandovery, Llangadock, Llandilo-fawr, Llanegwad, and Carmarthen, to a joint influx with the Taf at the head of Carmarthen bay. Its chief tributaries are the Towy-Vechan, the Camdwr, the Tothie, the Bran, the Sawddwy, the Cennen, the Cothi, and the Giuli.
