Aberaeron is a seaside resort town in Ceredigion, Wales. It sits between Aberystwyth and Cardigan, and houses the headquarters of Ceredigion County Council. At the 2001 census, the population was 1422. The town derives its name from the Welsh which means 'mouth of the River Aeron'.
Rev. Alban Thomas Jones Gwynne planned and developed the town in 1805. He built a harbour that worked as a port and supported the shipbuilding industry in the 19th century. A group of workmen's houses and a school were also erected on the harbour's north side, but these have since been reclaimed by the sea.
Craftspeople lived in Aberaeron even before it became an operating port. In 1830, there were bootmakers, bakers and carpenters to name a few.
Aberaeron has unusual architecture. Edward Haycock constructed it around a principle square of Regency buildings grouped around the harbour. Some of the architecture has been used on British postage stamps.
A notable feature of the town is Castell Cadwgan. It was a 12th-century ringwork fortification which was by the shore, but the sea has since claimed it. Some remains of the enclosure bank are still visible.
