Carmarthenshire? is one of thirteen historic counties in Wales and is located in the south west of the country. Its county town is Carmathen, one of the largest towns along with Llanelli and Ammanford. Llanelli is the largest town of all and there are approximately 170,000 people living in the region. Other towns include Pendine, Whitland, Llandovery, Newcastle Emyln, Llandeilo, Kidwelly, and Burry Port.

Carmarthenshire? was originally part of the Kingdom of Deheubarth during the Middle Ages and then, as with all of Wales, was conquered by Edward in 1282 and reorganized under the Statute of Rhuddlan in 1284 to become Carmarthenshire.

The main industries in the area are fishing, forestry, agriculture and tourism, and the region is popular because of its rural feel and breathtaking scenery. With stunning coastline to the south and along the Bristol Channel, and bordered by the equally picturesque Ceredigion to the north, Powys to the east and Pembrokeshire to the west, this is a fertile region filled with farming and an abundance of wildlife. Not for nothing is it known as the garden of Wales. Most of the landscape is mountainous with Black Mountain and Fforest Fawr extending into the east of the county and the Cambrian mountains in the north. The Towy river, the longest river in Wales, flows into the Bristol Channel and provides Carmarthenshire with some fantastic salmon and trout fishing and a number of stunning angling spots. In addition there are hundreds of enchanting fishing villages scattered along the coast.

Other highlights include numerous white sandy beaches, Carmel National Nature Reserve, Brechfa Forest, Millenium Coastal Park, Llanelli, Usk Reservoir and the National Wetlands Center in Llanelli. In addition south east Carmarthenshire is home to the western section of the outstanding Brecon Beacons National Park and Black Mountain is a beguiling and brooding peak that is one of Wales true highlights.

Add to that the hundreds of castles and museums as well as ancient towns and heritage railways and it quickly becomes clear that the county of Carmarthenshire? is one of the jewels in the Welsh crown.
