Carmarthenshire - Kidwelly

Kidwelly is a town and community in Carmarthenshire, west Wales, approximately 7 miles (11 km) north-west of the most populous town in the county, Llanelli. In the 2001 census the community of Kidwelly returned a population of 3,289, increasing to 3,523 at the 2011 Census.
It lies on the River Gwendraeth above Carmarthen Bay.
The earliest written form of the name, 'Cetgueli', is recorded by the monk, Nennius, writing in the 9th century. One theory is that the name means the land, territory, or kingdom of Cadwal. Another theory is that the name is the combination of the two words 'Cyd' (joint) and 'Gweli' (bed), i.e., the joining of the two river bedsGwendraeth Fawr and Gwendraeth Fach, wherein Cydweli lies. The town itself is ancient, established by written records at around 1106 AD.
The substantial and well preserved castle and church were established by the invading Normans in 1106. The earliest castle on the site was a typical Normanmotte and bailey design that was made of earth and timber. The 13th century re-design was commissioned by Edward I Longshanks as a strategic part of his 'Ring of Steel' oppression against the Welsh.
