Llanfair Clydogau is a small village and community encompassing 3,232 hectares (7,990 acres), located about 4 miles (6.4 km) north-east of Lampeter on the B4343 road, in Ceredigion, Wales. It has a population of 634 as of the 2011 UK census, 87.5% of whom are Welsh-speaking, formerly located within the hundred of Moyddyn.
The community is located at the southernmost area of Ceredigion's former lead and silver mines, which until the 1760s were highly productive. Clydogau refers to the River Clydogau or Clywedogau as it was originally spelt. The meaning of "clywedog" is audible, or noisy. The basins of Clywedog-isaf, Clywedog-ganol and Clywedog-uchaf are nearby.
There are two churches still in regular use, Saint Mary's Parish Church and the Welsh Independent Capel Mair, built in 1825, which is a Grade II listed building. Both churches have recently received improvements.
