Little History of Borth-y-Gest by Richard Walwyn was launched at the
Exhibition of Historic Photographs of Borth-y-Gest and the surrounding area over
Modern Borth y Gest is almost
entirely a mid-nineteenth century creation, but the township of Gest has a
history going back into the mists of time, and has associations with romantic
figures from the Hundred Years War and the Civil War, not to mention William
Alexander Madocks. For many years Borth-y-Gest was the departure point of a
ferry across the Traeth, and for a short time was a busy ship-building centre.
It nearly became a busy seaside resort to rival others round the coast of North
Wales. A Little History of Borth-y-Gest tells the story from the beginning.
The book has 68 pages and is an A5 paperback in black and
white with a colour cover. There are 3 maps, 13 illustrations
and several tables. The ISBN Number is 978-0-9561469-4-6.
