Nantygwryd, Carnarvonshire

Historical Description

Nantygwryd, a deep narrow vale in the E of Carnarvonshire, descending east-north-eastward from the eastern oft'-shoots of Snowdon to Capel Cnrig, and overhung on the S by Moel Siabod. It is traversed by a head-stream of the Llugwy and an affluent of the Conway, and it presents almost everywhere a severely desolate appearance, unrelieved by either wood or cultivation.

Transcribed from The Comprehensive Gazetteer of England & Wales, 1894-5
