Ships in Cardigan 19th Century - Copyright Ceredigion Libraries

Dros y Tonnau/Over the Waves is one of the projects run by Cymdeithas Aberteifi Society, a community-led organisation created to encourage pride in the town of Cardigan through its heritage.

Other projects have included improving signage in the town, working with Small World Theatre to create a Christmas Giant Lantern Parade, creation of a 3D map of mediaeval Cardigan, installation of blue plaques, bi-centenial celebration of the first sailing of local emigrants from Cardigan Quayside to Canada, working with local people to develop a Pilgrim’s Trail and build a local visual and audio archive.

We work with Cardigan Town Council and the Town Centre Partnership to develop projects to encourage pride in Cardigan Town and are currently helping to develop a Place Plan.
