More than 30 years ago, when my children were in primary school, I used to go to Carmarthen on the bus and go to the library to research local history. The items are taken from the Carmarthenshire Antiquarian Society notes which were available at the time. I have attached a couple of examples - one about the church and the other about Gwal y Viliast (quite an interesting and relevant read at the moment). I must have been given the photograph of the church. Someone has written on the back "1967?" and it was taken before the rhododendrons were removed and the wall was replaced.
