Cerrigydrudion, Corwen & District 1904 - Wales Sheet 120
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 covers Corwen and the area to the west, a region divided between Denbighshire and Merioneth. Apart from Corwen there are no towns and few sizeable villages. Author Derrick Partt tells us that it was an area that 19th century travellers "contemptuously dismissed" as "little more than huddles of poor houses beaded erratically along Telford's Holyhead Road". But there is always much of interest on a one-inch map, including here stretches of long lost railways, and the Alwen Valley which was soon to be flooded for a reservoir. Much of the land is mountain and moorland, with some of the Berwyn Mountains and the Denbigh Moors or Mynydd Hiraethog. On the reverse we include an extract from Merioneth sheet 15.15, showing Llandrillo in more detail, complete with directory.
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. Links are given for those for which detailed large-scale maps are also available.
