A Tour through Wales and letters on Hafod,

  • NLW MS 15190C.
  • File
  • 1790-1949 /

The typescript of a diary of a journey undertaken in 1790 from Newcastle-under-Lyme to Shrewsbury via Bristol and South Wales. The original diary was in the hand of Frances or Fanny Nicholson (later Mrs W. Shepherd), but apparently the diary was kept by one of her companions on the journey. The diary entries give detailed descriptions of the scenery viewed during the course of the journey and the places visited en route. There are interesting references to the towns and cities visited, churches, buidings, inns and houses. There are also references to industrial enterprises and various natural features viewed. There are also typescript copies of letters, 1803-1813, mainly from W. Shepherd to Fanny Nicholson, and letters, 1943-1949, discussing the potential publication of the material.
