Lechryd is an attractive village between Cenarth and Cilgerran. The bridge across the Teifi which is particularly wide at this point dates from the 17th century.
Lechryd means Slate Ford and refers to a local slate quarry. There was a tin works on the Southern side of the river and a canal was constructed to carry water to the works. At one time the Teifi was tidal anmd navigable as far as Lechryd until the 1840s. The area is now subject to flooding and the bridge itself was under water in 2007.
