LLANBADARN Y GARREG (LLAN-BADARN-Y-GAREG), a parish in the hundred of COLWYN, county of RADNOR, SOUTH WALES, 6 miles (E. S. E.) from Builth, containing 98 inhabitants. This parish comprises only about three hundred acres of enclosed land, and is situated on the small river Edwy, by which it is intersected, and of which the stream is here very narrow. The living is annexed to the rectory of Caregrina, in the archdeaconry of Brecknock, and diocese of St. David's. The church, dedicated to St. Padarn, is an ancient structure, consisting of a nave and chancel, which are appropriately fitted up for divine service : it has no tower or steeple, but a single bell is suspended under a small shed.. There is a place of worship for Welsh Calvinistic Methodists. A rent-charge of of 12, on a farm called Llanola, in this parish, was bequeathed by a Mrs. Gwynne of that place, to, be annually distributed among the poor of the parishes of Aberedwy, Llanvareth, and Llanbadarn y Garreg ; and an unknown benefactor also gave 10 in money, producing ten shillings per annum, for the relief of decayed housekeepers of this parish. The average annual expenditure for the support of the poor is 59.6.
