Dyfed ( ) is a preserved county of Walesmarker.

Dyfed was created by the Local Government Act 1972 on 1 April 1974. It was formed from the administrative counties of Cardiganshire, Carmarthenshiremarker, Pembrokeshiremarker and was divided into local government districts as so:

Administrative county

1889-1974
Local government districts

1974-1996
Cardiganshire Ceredigion
Carmarthenshiremarker Carmarthenmarker, Dinefwrmarker, Llanellimarker
Pembrokeshiremarker Preseli, South Pembroke


The Lord Lieutenant of Dyfed had previously been the Lord Lieutenant of Pembrokeshire, with the Lord Lieutenant of Cardiganshire and Lord Lieutenant of Carmarthenshire becoming Lieutenants. The Dyfed-Powys Police had been created a number of years earlier.

The Local Government Act 1994 broke up Dyfed and restored the ancient counties for administrative purposes on 1 April 1996: Cardiganshire (the council of which renamed itself Ceredigion), Carmarthenshiremarker and Pembrokeshiremarker. The name Dyfed was retained for purely ceremonial purposes such as Lieutenancy and is not used for geographical or postal purposes.
