Aberporth is a community and large village in Ceredigion on the west coast of Wales. The population was 2,485 in 2001, 49% of whom spoke Welsh, according to the 2001 Census, reducing slightly to 2,374 at the 2011 Census. Its beach has earned Blue flag status.LocationThe village lies at the southern end of Cardigan Bay about six miles north of Cardigan and ten miles south of New Quay approximately two miles west of the A487, on the B4333 and about 2 miles from Tresaith.HistoryIn the 16th century, Aberporth was a subsidiary landing point for the port of Cardigan. Boats, nets and salt for preserving were brought in from Ireland. It developed rapidly in the late 17th and early 18th centuries as local people began to take part in the maritime trade. It became a very active port with the northernmost of the two beaches extending into the river valley and provided a safe anchorage. Limekilns, coalyards and warehouses were built on its south shore.Aberporth developed into one of the main centres of the herring fishing industry in Wales. Drifting and netting were both employed and at one time at least 20 full-time herring smacks, a type of traditional fishing boat, went to sea regularly. The industry persisted until the beginning of the First World War when fish stocks declined. Crab and lobster fishing continues on a small scale to this day.
