Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Corris is a village in the south of Snowdonia in the Welsh county of Gwynedd. Although the Snowdonia National Park covers much of the area around Corris the village is not within the park. The name is believed to be derived from the English word "quarries," and the extensive slate quarries that surround the village are its most prominent historical feature. The population of Corris community is over 600.Corris lies on the west bank of the Afon Dulas, which here forms the county boundary between the counties of Gwynedd and Powys, Powys being to the east of the river. The Afon Deri runs through the village before joining the Dulas. The ancient Roman road between northern and southern Roman Wales, Sarn Helen, probably ran through the village. The settlement now known as Corris was at one time known as Abercorris, when the old turnpike road from Dolgellau to Machynlleth ran through the village. The modern A487 trunk road was built by the quarry owners in the 1840s and bypasses the villageshow more
