Alltwalis

Alltwalis 2003

Lleolir Alltwalis ar yr A485 ar waelod y bryn a roddodd ei enw i’r pentref: Yr Allt Walis. Mae’r mwyafrif o’r gweithgareddau economaidd yn ardal y pentref yn amaethyddol gyda ffermio defaid a llaeth. Mae llawer o breswylwyr Alltwalis yn gweithio yn y dref cyfagos sef Caerfyrddin. Mae’r Capel (nawr ar gau) a adeiladwyd yn 1897 yn lle un hŷn, yn edrych dros ganol y pentref. Drws nesaf i’r Capel yw’r Mason’s Arms, tafarn gwledig cyfeillgar. Cyferbyn â’r Capel a’r tafarn yw’r Ysgol. Adeiladwyd hi yn 1881 ac ysgol gynradd gymunedol fu hi tan Haf 2003. Adeilad amlwg arall ar y prif ffordd yw’r Hen Tollborth a adeiladwyd yng nghanol y bedwaredd ganrif ar bymtheg. Fe’i defnyddiwyd i gasglu tollau o deithwyr a masnachwyr a oedd ar eu ffordd i’r hen dref farchnad, Caerfyrddin. Jyst i’r de o’r tolldy mae cyfadeilad o dri chartref preswyl. Mae’r cartrefi hyn yn cynnwys yr adeilad a oedd yn felin wlân. Enw’r felin oedd ‘The Factory’. Adeiladwyd y felin yng nghanol y bedwaredd ganrif ar bymtheg ac fe’i lleolwyd hi’n gyfleus ar ochr Caerfyrddin y tolldy i osgoi talu tollau.

    I am wondering if anyone can help. I am looking into Welsh (farming/buildings) history, in particular the history of a property called Fron (Farm) Alltwallis.
    Does anyone have any information please.

    The speed bumps are still there and making drivers, in order to safeguard the springs on their cars, to drive over them at NOT 30mph, but 10mph or less. That may safeguard the occupants of the village but still damages endless numbers of vehicles. The safeguard for the village should be a camera and a fine for those going over 30mph, not the relentless vehicle damage cause but the ridiculously high ramps. The council is responsible for this damage and should be sued for it.

    Are you referring to the old village hall? My grandmother used to take me there to play whist in years 1987-1992ish.

    I wondered if anyone in Alltwalis had a photograph of the old Alltwalis factory before the building was turned into housing. An ancestor of mine had it as a woollen mill in the early 1900s.

    You would have thought that they would have repaired the holes in the roads around the area before adding more bumps to damage our vehicles

    I completely agree with you , I travel to the hospital every week, and know how uncomfortable they are. They, like the person whose idea it was, must be removed. how can we start to get them removed?

      Totally agree, but they are still there, as aggressive as ever, so please repeat your plea for something to be done. I have had a mechanical fault on my car caused by one of the Alltwalis ramps. Each time I drive into Carmarthen I see either reduction of speed to 10,ps or less or vehicles bumping over the ramps and clearly damaging their suspensions.

    What idiot in the roads department of Carmarthenshire CC decided to install speed bumps at Alltwalis that cannot be safely driven over at more than 10mph, even though this is a 30mph zone? This is a major route from Lampeter and other towns and villages to the A&E facility at Carmarthen. Ambulances will also have to slow down to 10mph, significantly increasing the time needed to get seriously ill people to hospital.
