Hi Pandora,sadly all the mining pits have closed around these areas,it's known as the Gwendraeth valley because the river, Gwendraeth Fawr (in english Fawr means big)  runs through these villages.I'm from this area originaly, a little village called Pontiets just a few miles from Trimsaran,but now i live in Carmarthen.
