Tregaron Town Information




Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Mid Wales...








A small market town in the Teifi Valley, Tregaron has a timeless air and was the birthplace in 1812 of non-conformist preacher Henry Richard, founder the Peace Union.


He is immortalised by a bronze statue sculpted by Albert Toft.


The town was once a meeting place for sheep drovers and is noted for its annual festival of harness racing.


Nearby lies the Cors Caron nature reserve, a wetland peat bog of international importance.


The Welsh version of Robin Hood - Twm Sion Cati – took his first breath in Tregaron and is reputed to have used local mountain caves as hideaways.
