Llanelli is the largest town in the county of Carmarthenshire, South West Wales. It sits at the mouth of the river Loughor, which travels down from its source in an underground lake in the Black Mountain. The town name derives from Saint Elli, who was born to a queen who was thought to be past the age of having children, and she dedicated Elli to the service of God.
Llanelli became known as “Tinopolis” during the 20th century because of its many iron and tinplate works. These factories, however, have long since closed and today the town is more renowned for its sporting prowess. ....
