The Town of Newcastle Emlyn, Carmarthenshire
Newcastle Emlyn (Welsh: Castellnewydd Emlyn) is a town on the border of the counties of Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire in west Wales (though officially it is in Carmarthenshire) and lying on the River Teifi.
Together with Adpar it has a population of around 1500, of which aprroximately 70% are fluent Welsh speakers.
Adpar is the part of the town that lies on the Ceredigion side of the River Teifi. It was formerly called Trefhedyn and was an ancient Welsh borough in its own right.
Unlike many small rural towns across Wales, Newcastle Emlyn has managed to keep a wide range of local shops and services, based mainly on small family run businesses. The town's largest employer is the Saputo factory which manufactures Mozzarella cheese using locally sourced dairy produce.
