Dwygyfylchi  Caernarvonshire


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

DWYGYFYLCHI, a village and a parish in Conway district, Carnarvon. The village stands on the coast, under Penmaen-bach-hill, adjacent to the Chester and Holyhead railway, about a mile ENE of Penmaenmawr r. station, and 2½ W of Conway. It commands picturesque scenery of shore and mountain; is a sea-bathing resort; and has a good hotel and several lodging-houses. ...

The parish includes also Isa-pen and Ucha-pen; and its post town is Conway. Acres, 5, 794; of which 2, 005 are water. Real property, £6, 107; of which £3, 606 are in quarries. Pop. in 1851, 926; in 1861, 1, 386. Houses, 272. The property is much subdivided. The increase of population between 1851 and 1861 arose partly from the extension of stone-quarrying. Remains of cromlechs and camps occur in several places. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Bangor. Value, £125.* Patron, the Rev. H. Roberts. The church was recently in very poor condition. A chapel of ease, of 1868, is at Penmaenmawr; and there is an Independent chapel.
