Ammanford & District 1908 - Wales Sheet 230
This folded map which measures approximately 24" x 18" when unfolded is produced by Alan Godfrey and covers an area of about 18 miles by 12 miles. It shows railways, roads and canals, and gives a broad view of a wider area. It also includes an introduction and a more detailed map of a small town or village.
This Inch to the Mile map, which is centred on Ammanford, is split between Carmarthenshire and Glamorgan, with a small portion of Brecknockshire to the NE. Coverage stretches from Pontyberem station and Middleton Hall eastward to Ystradgynlais, and from Llanarthney (or Llanarthne) southward to Pontardulais. Features include the Swansea Valley and Swansea Canal in the SE corner, part of the Black Mountains in the NE, Mynydd Bettws in the centre, the lower stages of the Central Wales railway. On the reverse we include an extract from Carmarthenshire Sheet 41.15, showing Llandybie in 1905, including St Tybie's church, station, Pant-yr-odyn and quarry to the north.
It is not possible to list the many hamlets, farmsteads and other topographical features shown on these maps. However, you may find it useful if we list the towns and principal villages or church parishes that are included on this map:
Carmarthenshire: Ammanford, Brynamman, Glanamman, Llanarthney, Llandybie, Llanedy, Llanegwad, Llanfihangel-Aberbythych, Llannon.
