The picturesque market town of Llandovery, (derived from the welsh Llan ym Ddy fri - Church among the Water) is situated in Carmarthenshire, 24 miles north-east of Carmarthen. The town stands on the river Bran, near its junction with the Towy, in a lovely valley, surrounded by wooded hills. Overlooking the river, are the remains of C12 Llandovery Castle, archeological excavations show earlier settlements including the remains of Roman occupation. Llandovery is an excellent choice for exploring the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains. In the distance you can spot the splendid mountain peaks of North Wales. Llandovery has a proud cultural and commercial history : The 19th Century saw the founding of Llandovery College, which has made a vast contribution to the intellectual and sporting life of Wales also the Tonn Press was established here and in 1799 David Jones, a Drover, founded the Black Ox Bank, (Banc Yr Eidon Du.) which matured into the 20th Century Lloyd’s Bank Every year Llandovery hosts the Around Wales Car Rally and the Small Nations Music Festival is held locally. Besides the usual pursuits of rambling, fishing, bird watching and canoeing, the area is well suited for mountain biking, boarding, and go-karting.
