A Tour in North Wales, 1826

Thomas J Masleni

Wednesday 27th September 1826

"...came to the village of Talybont at 7th mile stone situated in a dell having an Inn, two bridges over two pebbly brooks and a small waterfall, saw a large Bay the sea and a peet[sic] plain between two promentories, in which is the mouth of the fine River Dovy; a cutter coming in. A welshman generously lent me his horse at the 8 mile stone as he was going the same road; I mounted and road to the ten mile stone and parted. Passed a hamlet called Treddol, saw several weaver's looms and many black hat makers. Counted 31 hats drying at one house. Passed a bridge over a stream close to a very pretty waterfall of 20 feet deep or thereabouts. Hill and wood scenery with the river winding through the vallies..."

Dyddiadur bach mewn llawysgrif yw'r gyfrol hon, sy'n cynnwys nifer o luniau dyfrlliw hefyd, ond yn anffodus heb fod o'r plwyf.   This volume is a small manuscript diary which also contains a number of watercolours by the writer, though sadly none of the parish.
