The church probably dating from the 17th century and built on or near the site of a medieval chapel, is the main reason visitors come to Llandyry.

It's a plain cruciform shaped building with a rare weeping chancel and is in fine condition having recently celebrated a major restoration. There are weekly services as well as frequent weddings and funerals.

Llandyry is surrounded by farmland which lies between the two lines of hills that form the lower Gwendraeth valley.

Although once a centre for tinplate and coal exports, it declined along with traditional heavy industries. However, the natural beauty of the area has given it a promising future with tourism.

Pembrey is two miles south containing the country park, motor racing circuit and small airport.

The full facility horse racing track at Ffos Las, just one mile north, is under construction with a schedule to begin racing in 2009.

Along with 250 houses, a hotel and restaurant, it's expected to be a big attraction to visitors. It seems Llandyry will not remain a mystery place for much longer.
