The Forest Arms, Brechfa

The small village of Brechfa is located in the Cothi valley, Carmarthenshire and fought hard to save its local, the Forest Arms from closure.

An historic inn which on the 24th of April 1843 held a meeting of the Brechfa Trust whose responsibilty it was to collect the tolls from the turnpike roads in the area.  Later these tollgates were attacked by the Daughters of rebecca during the riots of the late 1830s and early 1840s.

Later during the 19th centruy it was much used by the gentry who came into the area to fish in the river Cothi and game shooting in the Brechfa Forest.

The Forest Arms has been closed for the last six years.
