In the 18th
century, salt smuggling was rife in Ceredigion where it was used to preserve
bacon and herring. Costing half the price in Ireland, there was a busy illegal trade,
evidenced in places such as Ogof yr Halen (meaning Salt Cave)
at Llangrannog. Similarly wines and spirits were smuggled, stored and traded
in local caves.
village, Llangrannog’s church is dedicated to Carantoc,
the son of a 6th century saint and founder of numerous churches in Wales.
The Urdd is
the Welsh youth movement and it is the biggest of its kind in Europe.
Each year its centre at Llangrannog provides activities for some 20,000
youngsters and features a heritage centre, dry ski-slope, equine centre and climbing wall all open to the public.
