My home town

By Ffynnoncadno  
Aberystwyth is a university town and community in Ceredigion, Wales. Located in the historic county of Cardiganshire, Aberystwyth means "the mouth of the Ystwyth". In one form or another, Aberystwyth University has been a major educational location in Wales since the establishment of University College Wales in 1872.

The town is situated on Cardigan Bay on the west coast of Wales, near the confluence of the River Ystwyth and Afon Rheidol. Following the reconstruction of the harbour, the Ystwyth skirts the town. The Rheidol passes through the town.

The seafront, with a pier, stretches from Constitution Hill at the north end of the Promenade(from where this photograph was taken) to the harbour at the south. The beach is divided by the castle. The town is divided into five areas: Aberystwyth Town; Llanbadarn Fawr; Waunfawr; Llanbadarn; Trefechan; and the most populous, Penparcau.

Including the suburbs of Llanbadarn Fawr, the population is 16,420, the built-up area having a population of 18,749 .

That makes me want to revisit Aberystwyth. You have caught the beauty of the coastline.
