Ceredigan (prevously known as
Cardiganshire) comprises around half the coastline of Ceredigon Bay. The
county town is Cardigan which was a major port until its harbour silted up.
It is one of the least populated counties of Wales. A large proportion of
the population speak Welsh. It is home to the famous university town of
Ceredigan is known to have been
inhabited sice prehistoric towns and there are many hill fort sites.
There are a number of small
villages and towns along the coast but the best known and agruably the most
attractive are New Quay and Aberaeron. However as a whole, the county is a
rural, farming area.
To the east of the county are
the Cambrian Mountains.
The coastline is famous for
regular sitings of Bottlenose Dolphins, Porpoises and Grey Seals.
The Ceredigon Coast Path now
forms part of the Wales Coast Path, which is now complete along the
whole coast of Wales. It provides some great walking opportunities and is an
important element in my walks. It is well signposted.
There are a series of Wales
Coast Path Official Guides
down for the walks.
