Victorian maps
  Llandysul in 1901  

The map below is a section of a map made at a scale of 6 inches to 1 mile in 1903.
The map shows what changes there have been in the village of Llandysul during the long reign of Queen Victoria.

  The village has not changed dramatically on the map but there have been some changes. Compare with the tithe map to see some of these.  
  1. Next to the Rectory at the top of the village there has been some building. Llandysul has a new parish church for its congregation, and next to that is a new village school. By the time this map was made all local children got an education. This gave all the children a better awareness of the world outside and new skills like reading and writing. For a few of them this opened up new opportunities when they were older.  
  2. The old churchyard is now just marked as "remains".  
  If you look closely at the map you will see other changes. Can you spot any ?  
  Compare with Llandysul in 1843...
