At an attractive location with good connections to most Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire towns, St Clears offers good facilities for residents and visitors alike St Clears (Welsh: Sanclêr) is a small town on the River Tâf in Carmarthenshire, west Wales, with a population of close to 3000 people. The Norman St Clears Castle was constructed in the twelfth century. Only the castle mound can still be seen, which rises to approximately 12 metres and was home to first a timber tower and then a stone keep. The town, which was a Marcher Borough, grew around the castle. Below the castle there was a port on the river Tâf, which could take ships of up to 500 tons according to a plaque on the site. The castle held out against Owain Glyndwr. In 1842, the town became famous for the destruction of one of its toll gates in the Rebecca Riots. The Normans also established a small priory under the supervision of the great abbey of St Martin les Champs in Paris. The priory church is now the parish church. It is worth a visit: it has a spectacular Romanesque arch inside.
