LLAN-AFAN-FECHAN - Extract from National Gazetteer, 1868

[Description(s) from The National Gazetteer (1868)]
"LLAN-AFAN-FECHAN, (or Llanfechan), a parish in the hundred of Builth, county Brecon, 3 miles S. of Llanafan-fawr. Builth is the post town. It is situated on the river Irvon. Slate is obtained, and the surface of the land is very irregular. A little to the right are Cefn-ybedd and Cwm Llewellyn, places endeared to the hearts of most Welshmen from the fact of their being the scene of the death and burial of Llewellyn-ap-Gruffydd, the last of the Welsh princes, in 1282. The living is a curacy annexed to Llan-afan-fawr. A farm here now occupies the site of the ancient seat of Gwarafog."
