North Cardiganshire & Aberystwyth 1909 - Wales Sheet 163
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 One Inch to the Mile map covers north Cardiganshire, with coverage stretching from Aberysytwyth and the coast eastward to Drosgol, Drybedd and the Cambrian Mountains; and from Aberdovey and the remote Dovey Junction station southward to Llanbadarn-Fawr and Aberysytwth. The Cambrian Mountains dominate the eastern half of the map, an area where, as Alan Leather tells us, "a walk must be taken with cautious steps - beware open stopes and grown-over engine shafts!" Several old lead mines are marked on the map. On the reverse, by contrast, we include a large scale, detailed map of the seaside village of Borth.
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.
