The name literally translates as the 'Old House', but no-one seems to know which house was referred to.
Tourist attractions include:
- One pub
- One rugby club
- One chip shop
- And a bridge
The bridge has been decreed as not being strong enough to carry two heavily laden juggernauts as required by European bureaucrats. The cost of strengthening the village bridge to motorway standards would be immense, so the local council opted for an easier and cheaper solution. The bridge then became single lane, with traffic lights at each end, so it would only be subject to the weight of a single lorry at any given time. A subsequent rethink by the council led them to a further cost cutting exercise. Leave the bridge as single lane, remove the traffic lights, and let the traffic sort itself out. This is fun at peak traffic times.
If you want to go out to eat, there is only the chip shop. Or you could go to neighbouring Pontarddulais and choose from a range of ethnic and pub cuisine.
