Teifi  Cardiganshire

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Teifi like this:

TEIFI, or Teivy (The), a river of Cardigan, Carmarthen, and Pembroke. It rises in the NE mountains of Cardigan; runs south-westward, past Tregaron and Lampeter, to the boundary with Carmarthen; divides that county and the county of Pembroke from the county of Cardigan westward to the sea between Cardigan island and Cardigan head; and has a total course of about 50 miles. ...


Drayton says,-

Sith I must stem thy stream, clear Teivy, yet before
The Muse vouchsafe to seize the Cardiganian shore.
She of thy source will sing in all the Cambrian coast:
Which of thy castors once, but now canst only boast
Thy salmons, of all floods, most plentiful in thee.
