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 a pub each for Penllyn and Craig  Penllyn.

CAROLS BY TRACTOR The annual 'trip on a tractor' around the villages by the Red Fox  Choir will take place this Saturday December 20th (subject to the  weather), bringing a selection of familiar Christmas Carols to  residents.   The tour begins at around 6.30pm, calling first at Salmons Wood  and will cover both villages before arriving back at the Fox for its  encore by around 8pm.  As always, collectors will be calling to accept offers of appreciation  (or bribes to go away!). This year donations will be given to the  Stroke Ward at the Princess of Wales Hospital. Last year over £500  was raised for Prostrate Cymru.
