Talley Abbey was established by the Premonstratensians (also known as the White Canons) in this part of what is now Carmarthenshire in conjunction with Rhys ap Gruffydd in or about 1185.

The abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII and the structure mined and quarried by the villagers for stone to build much of the present village and the chapel next to the abbey, from where this shot was taken.
