The Newcastle Emlyn heritage trail app was launched in October 2014. The app is bilingual and makes use of GPS to show places of interest in and around the town. 

By downloading the app you will be able to view some archived images of Newcastle Emlyn and listen to some audio pieces by Ken Jones, a local historian with a wealth of local knowledge. 

Learn interesting facts about:

  • The first printing press in Wales

  • ​'Gwiber Emlyn' - The dragon serpent  

  • The workhouse

The app was funded by RDP Sir Gâr's Landscape and Heritage Grant. RDP Sir Gâr was funded by the Rural Development Plan For Wales 2007-2013, which is funded by the Welsh Government and European agricultural fund for rural development.
