The Location

St Clears is a historic market town in a Central location in West Carmarthenshire, and near the Pembrokeshire border. The Normans constructed a castle and church here. The town also played a promintent part in the infamous Rebecca Riots of 1840, when mostly farmers and agricultural workers rose up against the oppressive tollgates,often dressed up as women. It’s understood that some of “Rebecca’s Daughters” drank in the main farmhouse next door to Ysgubor Bryncaerau, which was a public house during this period. You will see many references to the Wild Boar in St Clears.The Story of Culhwch and Olwen is over a thousand year’s old,.King Arthur and his warriors hunted the Wild Boar across South Wales and  South West England, and the creature ran over the bridge in St Clears.
