Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Mawddwy Railway was a rural line in the Dovey Valley in mid-Wales that connected Cemmaes Road and the Cambrian Railway with Dinas Mawddwy. Despite being only 6 miles 63 chains long, there were three intermediate stations at Cemmaes, Aberangell and Mallwyd. Three parallel veins of Ordovician slate run through mid Wales. These veins near the surface at three locations - around Abergynolwyn in the west, surrounding Corris, and at their easternmost in the district around Dinas Mawddwy. Each of these locations has been a centre for slate quarrying, although Corris was the largest producer of the three.show more
