The Parish of Penllyn sits in one of the most beautiful parts of The Vale of Glamorgan in South Wales and contains the villages of Penllyn and Craig Penllyn, together with Pentre Meyrick. It was largely untouched by the industrialisation of the 19th and 20th centuries, instead depending on its farming. Affluence and demographic trends have altered the community and now agriculture is concentrated on a small number of farms. The parish contains a number of notable buildings including Penllyn Castle which dominates the moors over which it looks, the churches of Llanfrynach and St John’s and The Red Fox pub in Penllyn
POLICE AND COMMUNITIES TOGETHERPACT meetings are an opportunity for the Community to talk to the Police about what matters the most to them in their area. More information...

FIBRE BROADBANDThe more people from Craig and Penllyn who register their interest in having super fast fibre broadband, the quicker we will get connected. The current status of the local telephone cabinet is 'under review' as it has been for at least a year, and it would be good to put some pressure on Openreach. There was an encouraging presentation by BT recently but whether you will be able to get fibre broadband is going depend on how far you are from the telephone cabinet. Many people are complaining about their broadband speed and if you are amongst them, or just want to help your friends in the village, please register your interest as soon as possible to get us moved up the list.
