Afon Teifi, Ceredigion, Wales

The river at Cors Caron

The Haunted Riverbank

A Green Lady allegedly haunts the bank of the river. She was described as having “dark hair... plaited with long switches, and bound with bands of gold”. She was also noted as wearing a golden girdle, and that a bunch of golden keys hung from it. Holland states that she has some connection with a mound near the bank, but does not actually indicate where along the 75-mile stretch this place categorically is.


Visitor Information

The River Teifi (Welsh: Afon Teifi) forms the boundary between the counties of Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire in southwest Wales for most of its length, and the boundary between Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire for the final 3 miles of its total length of 76 miles (making it the longest river wholly in Wales), flowing into the sea below the town of Cardigan.
