"Three Crosses is an inland village at the north east of the peninsula. Situated at a crossroad on the road from Swansea city centre (10 km) to Penclawdd (5 km), it grew up in the early 19th century to serve small shallow collieries in the area. These collieries had disappeared by the early years of the 20th century, ..." wikipedia

"THREE CROSSES is a small village, 1¼ miles west from Dunvant station on the Gowerton and Swansea branch of the London, Midland and Scottish railway. ... There are Calvinistic Methodist chapels at Llanrhidian, Llanmorlais and Crofty, and a Welsh Congregational chapel at Three Crosses, founded in 1700, with sittings for 600 persons."
