About Newcastle Emlyn

The small town of Newcastle Emlyn in West Wales, lies on the borders of Carmarthenshire and Ceridigion, though, for administrative purposes it is firmly in Carmarthenshire. The town seems to spread itself around both banks of the river Teifi, which forms a natural boundary between the two counties, and looks like one town. However, the part of the town that lies on the Ceredigion side of the Teifi is in fact Adpar which was at one time, was an ancient borough in its own right.

Unlike many other Welsh towns, Newcastle Emlyn is not a dormitory town with commuters working in nearby towns. As far as employment is concerned, most of the 1,500 population (in which both Newcastle Emlyn and Apdar residents are counted) work for a wide range of local services, with the biggest employer in town being the Saputo factory which makes mozzarella cheese from locally sourced dairy produce.

It's an attractive little town in a beautiful setting and would make a good place from which to explore the surrounding countryside and the beaches of Pembrokeshire. Newcastle Emlyn's ruined castle was built in the tumultuous days when hotheaded Welsh chieftains clashed with the Norman barons. It was seized in 1215 by Llewellyn the Great. Between them the Normans and Welsh managed to knock the castle about a great deal although the beautiful site on the banks of the Teifi make it a natural place to hold local events and for family picnics.

Today Newcastle Emlyn is a warm hearted little town with a great community spirit. It has both a rugby and football team, and the golf club and ladies' hockey club are very active. There is a ramblers club which meets every Saturday, rain or shine, for a two hour walk. It holds an annual Victorian evening in early December, a Dragon festival and Teifi Valley agricultural show. It is home to an art gallery, the Attic Theatre company, the National Woollen Museum, The Welsh Coracle Centre can be found nearby, and the Teifi Valley Railway is just a short way out of town. The market and cattle market is held every Thursday and nearby farmers still drive their stock to market through the town.

Newcastle Emlyn also has a legend of which it is justly proud. As with most legends there are no exact dates but one has to imagine a medieval fair taking place in the castle grounds when in flies a winged viper spitting fire and smoke (a Wyvern, in fact). He settles on the castle walls casts a few terrifying glances around, huffs and puffs enough to make sure that everyone is in their house, and then he curls up and settles down to sleep. It's very inconvenient having a mini dragon look alike hanging around town and threatening everyone, so folks begin to plot its downfall. A wily archer crosses the river and casts his scarlet cloak on the water. He then fires and hits the Wyvern in its vulnerable underbelly. The beast falls on the cloak in the water tearing it to shreds and the dragon slayer gets away unscathed. As the creature dies a horrible venom leaks out into the river and kills all the fish.

However the river Teifi, which winds 75 miles between the two counties, seems to have recovered as it is now a Site of Special Scientific Interest because of it teeming wildlife and interesting flora. The Teifi Trout Association flourishes, and every year salmon and trout stage their spectacular runs up the Teifi to spawn.
