Newcastle Emlyn, in the heartland of Ceredigion, has been unkindly forgotten – its history, at least.
Newcastle Emlyn, Emlyn to locals, is where quite a few significant events have happened!
Legend has it a Wyvern, a type of dragon – landed on the castle wall to close its eyes for a wee nap before moving on.
Emlyn played a significant part in the Welsh literature revival- carrying nationalistic over and undertones in the 18th century.
It is also in Newcastle Emlyn that the last recorded duel in Wales was fought. The story is an excellent lesson in what not to say and about growing eyes in the back of your head to catch your cheating opponent in a duel – oops, we’ve said too much!
