Widely dispersed farms form the prevailing settlement pattern of this part of South Carmarthenshire. Shown near the top are Towy Valley, the major historic route into west Wales, and the Roman road from Carmarthen to Llandovery. Llanon is depicted near the centre along the tollroad from Llanelly. Situated on the north bank of the River Burry, Llanelly was a small parish town at the time of the Ordnance Survey. Sand dunes and marshland dominate the landscape of The Burry inlet at the bottom of the sheet.
