Ystumtuen, Ceredigion

Ystumtuen is a small village in northern Ceredigion, Wales above the valley of the River Rheidol. It is situated on rocks rich in lead and silver and during a lengthy period in the 18th and 19th centuries, Ystumtuen was a busy mining village. With the demise of the lead mining industry and in particular the closure of Cwm Rheidol mine, the population dwindled rapidly with the last ancestral population disappearing in the 1970s.
