Silian, originally Sulien, is a village in the valley of the River Aeron, Ceredigion, Wales. It is located approximately two miles north-west of Lampeter, on a minor road connecting Pont Creuddun on the A482, and Glan Denys on the A485.
In January 2014, permission was granted for a wind turbine in Silian, in the face of strong local opposition. The county council, deciding a site visit for an area that is home to rare red kite birds was not required, were enthusiastic to help "secure local business."
A local Welsh language paper, Llais Aeron, covers the area. Self-catering accommodation and B&Bs are available in the village, which is conveniently situated for visiting the towns of Lampeter, Aberaeron and Aberystwyth.
Ownership of the 1856 school, which closed in 1976, has since been a cause of legal contention. Villagers are proposing to buy the premises for redevelopment as a community resource centre.
