Llandovery is a market town in Carmarthenshire, Wales, lying on the River Tywi and the A40/A483 roads. The town is served by Llandovery railway station, where there is a park and ride to Llanelli and Shrewsbury via the Heart of Wales Line. Llandovery — a corruption of ' Llanymddyfri', meaning 'Llan ymlith y dyfroedd' or in English 'Church enclosure amidst the waters' — owes its name to its position between the River Tywi and the Afon Brân just upstream of their confluence. A smaller watercourse, the Bawddwr, runs through and under the town. Llandovery is twinned with Pluguffan in Brittany, France. Llandovery was allocated number 468 in the PO list of 1844.
