I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'welsh town' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'left route before wrong turning' is the wordplay.
'left' becomes 'l' (common abbreviation).
'route before' becomes 'lane' (type of road. I am not sure about the 'before' bit.).

'turning' is a reversal indicator.
'ill' written backwards gives 'lli'.

'in' is the link.
