Description:
Llanfair is a small village, encompassing 3232 ha, located about 4 miles north-east of Lampeter, in Ceredigion, Wales. It has a population of around 770, 87.5% of which are Welsh-speaking, formerly located within the hundred of Moyddyn.

The community is located at the southernmost area of Ceredigion's former lead and silver mines, which until the 1760s were highly productive. The meaning of "clywedog" is audible, or noisy which refers to the river Clydogau, or Clywedogau as it was originally spelt. The basins of Clywedog-isaf, Clywedog-ganol and Clywedog-uchaf are nearby.

There are two churches still in operation, Saint Mary's Parish and Ebeneser Congregational chapel, originally established 1799 as a brewery.

Local native and scholar G.J. Williams, (1892-1962), was the first president of Yr Academi Gymraeg .
