Hiraethog  Denbighshire

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Hiraethog like this:

HIRAETHOG HILL, a range of hill and mountain in Denbigh; extending north-westward from the confiines of Merioneth, in the vicinity of Derwen, to the coast of the Irish sea, in the vicinity of Conway. It is about 25 miles long, and from 5 to 15 miles broad. It contains some high lakes, and the sources of many streams; and it is, in general, heathy and barren, yet includes some fertile spots.
