Lampeter

Lampeter High Street in Wales

At Lampeter, there are restaurants, cafes and public houses. There are also two supermarkets, small family run shops, an organic shop and a fortnightly farmers market. Lampeter is the home of the oldest University College in Wales. Although it is now part of the federal structure of the University of Wales, Saint David's University College is the oldest degree-awarding institution in Wales and England after Oxford and Cambridge. The Romans once mined for gold near Lampeter, at Pumpsaint. In the eighteenth century Lampeter was an important gathering place for the Drovers. These people gathered huge herds of livestock to be walked all the way to the markets of southeast England. The Drovers established some of Wales' oldest banking institutions - all of which have now been assimilated into UK banks - but the sign of the rearing horse maintained by Lloyds remains to remind present generations of these merchants of long ago as the horse is, indeed, a Welsh mountain pony. There is splendid countryside scenery to be enjoyed in the Lampeter area - and wonderful angling on the river Teifi.
