Synopsis

Conwy, a small North Wales town, is dominated by the thirteenth-century castle of Edward I, built together with the town and walls. The town has had an interesting and often violent history. By Elizabethan times, Conwy settled into a more peaceful existence, but by the seventeenth century, violence returned at the time of the Civil War. In the nineteenth century, the river was bridged by road and by rail and expansion began, which led to the dawn of modern times.



By the mid-twentieth century, increasing traffic congestion was threatening to strangle the town. Although a new bridge was built in 1958, this problem was not solved until a tunnel was built in 1991. Many old buildings remain, including St Mary's church (parts of which are older than the castle), Plas Mawr and Aberconwy House. Author John Barden Davies invites the reader on a tour of Conwy through the past and present, illustrated with a selection of beautiful photographs.

John was born and brought up on the North Wales coast and has known Conwy since his earliest days, taking a keen interest in the history of this unique town. From an early age he has had an interest in local history, and has watched with interest the modern development of Conwy since the middle of the twentieth century. His other interests are public transport, tourism and photography. His first book was on the subject of the development of public transport and tourism in North Wales. John spent his working life in the Church in Wales and now lives in retirement in Deganwy. In this book he tells the story of Conwy from the Medieval period, through Elizabethan, Georgian and Victorian times up to the present day.
