Named after the River Clwyd which runs through the area, Clwyd was an area of North Wales which was created in 1974 from the old counties of Denbigh and Flint, and continued until 1996 when it was abolished. Predominantly a rural area, in the 18th century the main town of ‘Wrecsam’ (Wrexham) became a centre for coal and limestone mining and the production of iron, steel and bricks. Development of the railways during the 19th century resulted in growth of the industrial scene, and the expansion of the railway system supporting it. In Clwyd’s Lost Railways author, Neil Burgess, tells the story of the railways in the area and accompanies it with photographs from the steam era, showing many of the stations now lost. Dates are given for station and line closures and a map showing the railways of Clwyd is also featured. Places shown include Acrefair, Bala Junction, Cynwyd, Hafod Halt, Legacy, Llandrillo, Marchweil, Nannerch, Caerwys, Berwig, Star Crossing and many more.
