Lower Teifi Valley

The Lower Teifi Valley is a complex and heterogeneous historic landscape. It ranges from the windswept, treeless and hedgeless fields of the coast at the far west to clustered medieval and later buildings of the market town of Cardigan nestling in a sheltered location on the north bank of the Teifi. The majority of the landscape is, however, characterised by dispersed farms, hedges and woodland. Although there are considerable differences in the date, size and style of buildings in this landscape, the use of local Cilgerran, or Teifi Valley slate, is a unifying element, and provides a strong element of coherence across both time and space.
