St Ishmaels Area

The lively and lovely parish of St Ishmael, located on the estuary of the River Towy, includes the villages of Ferryside and Llansaint, the hamlets of Broadlay and Broadway, and the surrounding farmlands.

Historically both villages are strongly associated with fishing and seafood. The parish logo symbolises the traditional industry of cockle-gathering which flourished in Ferryside, although most of the early gatherers came from Llansaint.

Now, the two villages offer a wide range of social, cultural and community activities.
