Recognised as a centre of excellence, the club hosts national slalom and rafting competitions including freestyle and white water racing.

History of Llandysul

Llandysul and the surrounding Teifi Valley were once the centre of Wale’s thriving woollen industry. Before the days of electric power, the river Teifi and its tributaries were used to power dozens of water mills, whilst the surrounding grassland was stocked with sheep. Today, Rock Mill remains the last working water mill in the area and is open to visitors wishing to see traditional weaving methods first hand. Further information on the history of the Welsh woollen industry can also be found at the National Wool Museum in nearby Drefach Felindre.

Highlights of the town’s rich history include the charming 13th century building of St Tysul Church, originally founded in the 6th century by Tysul, cousin to David, patron saint of Wales. Within the church a collection of early Christian inscribed stones can be found in the choir vestry and the Lady Chapel. The bell tower houses a ring of six bells which can be heard across Llandysul on a Wednesday evening, courtesy of the Llandysul Band of Bellringers.

Local Amenities

A walk along Llandysul’s unspoilt main street offers an interesting selection specialist shops for visitors to browse.
