KÎLYCWM (CÎL-Y-CWM), a parish, in the union of LLANDOVERY, higher division of the hundred of CAYO, county of CARMARTHEN, SOUTH WALES, 4 miles (N.N.W.) from Llandovery; comprising the Upper and Lower hamlets. This parish, which is intersected by the river Towy, extends for nearly ten miles in length, and is in some parts five miles in breadth, being for the most part inclosed: copper and lead ores abound within its limits, and mines of both were formerly worked to a considerable extent, but they are not now in operation. The church is dedicated to St. Michael. There are three places of worship for Baptists, and one for Calvinistic Methodists. There are five Sunday schools conducted by gratuitous teachers, in one of which, connected with the Established Church, are instructed in English and Welsh; the rest, appertaining to the dissenters, are taught the Welsh language only.[1]
