Tainewydd or Bank Tainewydd Five Roads, Llanelly
« on: Saturday 04 January 20 23:10 GMT (UK) »
Hi

Does anyone know where the above would appear in old (or even) new maps of the area (note this is not Tynewyyd, Five Roads, which is a separate property)

Thank you

On the website http://fiveroads.cymru/Heritage_Files.html there is a PDF file with farms and field names in Five Roads. I have searched and Tainewydd is not mentioned, but this group may know.

Sorry for the late reply. A good spot but I think the wrong one as north of Pontyberem and not near 5 roads. I have also made enquiries elsewhere and got the below reply. Looks like a small group of houses, probably too small to be mentioned specifically on any map

“ With regards to Tainewydd/Bank Tainewydd, this was more commonly known as Banc-y-tai, being the given name for five old cottages on Heol Hen, that stood on the brow of the hill roughly a hundred yards from the square at Five Roads.
 
Interestingly, a row of three white-washed thatched cottages was demolished in 1938, the last of the thatched cottages in the village. They were situated on a public footpath off Heol Hen leading to Croesnant Farm. They were demolished to make room for Stone Terrace that was built by Llanelli Rural Council.

Tynewydd (a separate dwelling) is currently a dwelling house on Rehoboth Road. Formerly an Inn, “The Plough and Harrow”, this was where David Davies aka “Dai’r Cantwr”, a ringleader of the Rebecca Rioters was arrested.”
