View of a road near Cardigan in West Wales. Cardigan was the principal town of the old Welsh kingdom of Deheubarth and before the development of the railway network in the 18th century it was one of the busiest shipping ports in Wales. The name Cardigan originates from Ceredig, the son of a Roman official who wrested this area from Irish settlers in the fifth century. Cardigan is the English name for the area, in Welsh it is Aberteifi which translates as ‘mouth of the Teifi’.
