In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Borth like this:
BORTH, a village, a small watering-place, in Cyfoethy-Brenin township, Cardigan; adjacent to the Newtown and Aberystwith railway, 8 miles NNE of Aberystwith. It has a station on the railway, and a post office under Shrewsbury. It stands close to the sea; and consists of a street of mean white houses. Sandy beaches, called Borth sands, extend 4 miles from its vicinity northward to the estuary of the Dovey; and are overlooked by cliffs, commanding splendid sea-views.
