The Naming Of Ammanford
Did you know the Ammanford was only called this in 1880? Prior to this it was known as Cross Inn, after one of the coaching inns that lay on the cross roads between Llandeilo and Betws and the road between Amman Valley and Penybanc. The small hamlet that was located at the cross roads consisted of several of these coaching inns as well as a few cottages.
As the area began to grow in size and prosperity, a decision was taken to change the name of the area, particularly because there was another village in the region named Cross Inn. The petition was back by member of the church who did not care to live in a place named after a public house. Furthermore, to add to the case the local chapel was known as Cross Inn Chapel! Finally, following several public meetings a committee proposed the name Ammanford which was accepted.
The Industrial Revolution
Due to the Industrial Revolution the need for coal escalated. The mines in the area required more and more miners. These new jobs brought new people to the area and within a short space of time Ammanford changed from a rural community to a busy town.
Fair Trade Town
In 2002, Ammanford was granted the status accolade of Fair Trade Town which indicates that the town complies with Fair Trade criteria, including promoting Fair Trade goods.
