Llansteffan, formerly also anglicized as Llan- or Lanstephan, is a community and village on the coast of Carmarthenshire in south-west Wales. It lies on the western side of the River Tywi estuary, some seven miles below the county town of Carmarthen and opposite the village of Ferryside.NameThe name means "parish of Saint Stephen", but honors a 6th-century Welsh associate of Saint Teilo rather than the more widely known protomartyr.DescriptionThe parish of Llansteffan consisted of two very distinct villages with separate churches: Llansteffan by the estuary and Llanybri on the hilltop inland. St Ystyffan's church is a grade II* listed building. Between the castle and village sits Plas Llanstephan, Lord Kylsant's former residence, which is also a grade II* listed buildingThe poet Dylan Thomas had strong family links to Llansteffan. The triangle formed by Llangynog, Llangain and Llansteffan constitutes Thomas' "breeding-box valley", as he once put it. His mother's family, the Williamses, lived in the triangle, in farms such as Waunfwlchan, Llwyngwyn, Maesgwyn and Penycoed. Llansteffan was one of two villages involved in a digital-television switchover experiment in 2005 when the district experienced the first instance of analogue switch-off in the UK.
