Llanpumsaint from the air

Llanpumsaint is a picturesque village on the river Gwili approximately six miles north of Carmarthen.

The village has a long and distinguished past and although it did not gain its name until the sixth century, the area has been occupied for at least four and a half thousand years as seen from the large number of standing stones in the area.

The walking tour will give you a flavour of the history of the village.

Mobile phone coverage in the village is patchy - at the moment, the only network with comprehensive coverage is EE (formerly Orange and T-mobile). If your phone is on another network, you may want to download the map and PDF files below so that you can follow the walk without phone coverage.
