Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Berwyn range is an isolated and sparsely-populated area of moorland located in the north-east of Wales, roughly bounded by Llangollen in the north-east, Corwen in the north-west, Bala in the south-west, and Oswestry in the south-east. The Berwyn range also played its part in causing King Henry II of England to turn back during his invasion of Gwynedd in 1165.
