Calling all maps and history buffs!

You can now get from Aberystwyth a link that will show the old maps back to 1830.

It is a very good system whereby you can see if your house, or any other property, was on the old map by overlaying with current maps.

This is the link cynefin.archiveswales.org.uk to the Cynefin project, with the maps, as above, plus lots of other historic map information and news.

For those more interested in social history, please click here for a delightfully detailed account, taken from the Evening Express newspaper, dated 19 April 1895, of the marriage of Muriel Howell and William Buckley.  The account describes the wedding as - among other things - a 'riot of rejoicings and festivities' and it makes colourful and insightful reading!
