Hermon (About this soundWelsh pronunciation) is a small rural village in the parish of Llanfyrnach and the community of Crymych, Pembrokeshire, Wales, about 1 mile (1.6 km) southeast of Crymych.[1]

History[edit]

A pre-1850 parish map shows an inn in the village,[2] The Lamb Inn which, according to CAMRA, is now (2018) closed.[3]

Chapel[edit]

Hermon Baptist Chapel

There are two chapels in the village. Hermon Baptist Chapel was built in 1808 and subsequently rebuilt the same century.[4] Brynmyrnach Welsh Independent Chapel was built in 1888.[5][6]

Community Centre[edit]

When Hermon School closed in 2006, it was bought by the community, extended and converted into a Community Resource Centre (Canolfan Hermon), which was completed in 2013. The 53 pupils of the school transferred to Ysgol-y-Frenni Community Primary School.[7][8]
