History & Amenities
The village was built along the southern side of the scenic River Ystwyth and contains a parish church, Nonconformist chapel, primary school, GP Surgery and garage. Unfortunately the village post office is now closed but a mobile van visits several times during the week. The church is dedicated to St Hilary. There is a large square tower, a chancel, nave and porch. In the porch is a hollowed stone for holding holy water, and above the door an ancient beam with carved heads and animals, inscribed with the words: J.S. W.W.A. Church Wardens, 1683. 
Llanilar railway station on the line from Carmarthen to Abserystwyth opened in 1867 and closed in 1964 following severe flooding in the Llanilar area.
