Some Victorian maps
 
  Beulah hamletin 1833 (or not!)  
 

Below is a small part of a larger map made by the surveyors of the Ordnance Survey in 1833. It was made at a scale of 1 inch = 1 mile and we have enlarged it here. The map gives us an idea of this part of the Cammarch valley at the beginning of Queen Victoria's reign.

 
 

The first thing you will notice is that Beulah does not exist! The river crossing marked with a red star shows the site of the hamlet but we can see that in 1833 there was no hamlet there at all.

 
  Compare with a map of the area in 1888..
