Mid Cardiganshire 1909 - Wales Sheet 178
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 an entirely rural area, from immediately south of Aberystwyth southward to just north of Tregaron. The 'Manchester & Milford Section' railway runs through the map, and part of the Devil's Bridge narrow gauge line is also shown. Other features include the Strata Florida abbey, and various lead mines (though that industry was in decline). On the reverse we include an extract from Cardiganshire Sheet 14.11 showing Llanrhystyd in detail in 1904, 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.
