Llanfihangel Y Creuddyn  Cardiganshire


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

LLANFIHANGEL-Y-CROYDDIN, a village, two townships, and a parish in Aberystwith district, Cardigan. The village stands on an affluent of the river Ystwith, near a railway which was in course of formation in 1866 from the Central Wales line to Aberystwith, and 7½ miles SE by E of Aberystwith; and is neatly built and of considerable size. ...

The townships are Lower L. and Upper L. Acres of Lower L., 6,592. Real property, £3,330. Pop. in 1851,931; in 1861,978. Houses, 195. Acres of Upper L., 15,961.

Post town, Aberystwith. The property of Lower L. is divided among a few. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of St. David's. Value, £184. Patron, the Bishop of St. David's.
