The tiny hamlet of Horeb, a mile to the east of Five Roads square was once a thriving centre of brick production in the 19th century. Some remaining works, such as a chimney and kilns can still be seen today. With its own railway station, Horeb has the distinction of having the earliest public railway in Great Britain in 1803.

 

Horeb Chapel

The literal English translation of Waun Wyllt means Wild Moor. Sylen Mountain, two miles or so up the road, can easily be described as a wild moor on a windy winter's day.

 

Built in the 18th century, the pub sits in the gently sloping Sylen Valley, on Horeb Road. A mere ten minute drive from Llanelli. For the history of the surrounding area and the larger Gwendraeth Valley, click here.
