Welcome to Denbighshire Archive Service’s brand new blog.
Initially the blog will focus on a travel journal, with contemporary photographs, following the 250 mile journey of holiday-makers from Manchester and Chester who visited North Wales in 1890. The diary provides a portrait of Denbighshire and North Wales over a hundred and twenty years ago and what holidays may have been like for some Victorians. The writers visit and describe areas in Denbighshire today, such as Llangollen, Corwen and Rhyl together with other areas of North Wales such as Snowdonia, Conwy and Llandudno.
During the next few months the blog will be updated weekly. Each day of the diary will be spread over 3 or 4 posts, as every day is described in some detail alongside some wonderful illustration pages. Please note that we have not altered any of the spellings used although we have added the correct place-name spellings in square brackets where necessary.
