  • Merionethshire Sheet 22.03 Bala 1899 - published 2002; intro by Derrick Pratt. ISBN.978-1-84151-453-6

    This detailed map covers Bala in 1899 with the village of Llanfor creeping in at the top right hand side of the map, and the Bala & Ffestiniog Railway running diagonally across the map between the two. The River Dee twists and turns alongside the railway line, the whole of the area around it being liable to floods. Other features include Christ Church, County School, Bala Union Workhouse, Victoria Hall and Bala Junction Station. On the back of the map, we have a historical introduction by Derrick Pratt and a directory.
