Caron uwch Clawdd, Ceredigion
CARON-UWCH-CLAWDD, or Strata Florida, a township-chapelry in Caron-ys-Clawdd parish, Cardigan. It includes the village of Rhydfendigaed; and its Post Town is Tregaron, under Carmarthen. A Cistertian Abbey, often called Ystrad-Flwr Abbey, was founded here, in 1164, by Rhys-ap-Gryfydd, prince of South Wales; burnt down in the wars of Edward I.; restored afterwards to more than its original splendour; and given, at the dissolution, to the Stedmans.
