Eglwyscummin

=General Outline=

Eglwyscummin is a parish council boundary area on the south-west of Carmarthenshire, West Wales incorporating Marros and Cyfig parishes with the village of Red Roses seen as the heart of the area.

Eglwyscummin is made up mostly of agricultural farming land with a main road route to the once popular holiday resort of Pendine Sands and the main route to south Pembrokeshire and the Pembroke Dock ferry port.

Administration

Overall administration and services are via Carmarthenshire County Council inline with Eglwyscummin Community Council and input from the Taf Myrddin Community Network. Other input comes from the Eglwyscummin Community Association.

Places

Ciffig (also Cyffig) parish church. St. Margaret's parish church and hall in Eglwyscummin. St. Lawrence's parish church in Marros. The Community Centre and Memorial Garden in Red Roses.

Apart from the local farms, other businesses in the area include a horse riding school, a shooting range, several caravan parks, holiday cottages for the disabled, a bus company, a farm producing ice cream and cheese, an Autograss league track and two public houses.

History

The English translation from the Welsh name Eglwyscummin is church community although the name derived from the Celtic Saint Cynin. There were five churches within the district but currently now only three remain operable with Cyfig Church now taking services again after maintenance work was carried out during 2006/7. Some history on the area can be found here: [http://194.130.49.78/HistoryListPublic.cfm?CisRef=60&SiteRef=1&SubjectID=70] .

Development

Plans for a main traffic by-pass route to take over from the current poorly-rated, accident-ridden route from St. Clears to Red Roses have been announced by the Welsh Assembly. Work is scheduled to take place in around 2010.
