Originally published in London 1903 by MacMillan & Co., Ltd., this 1914 reprint of the Highways and Byways in South Wales, is republished here on fully-searchable CD-ROM. Macmillan began publishing the Highways and Byways series in 1899 and by 1909 had completed almost twenty publications in the series, which extended across the length and breadth of England, Scotland and Wales, with one publication on Normandy and and another on Ireland. This highly popular series continued until the beginning of the Second World War.
The Highways and Byways in South Wales contains more than 400 printed pages, including a map of the route taken by the author, Arthur Grenville Bradley, who undertook an almost circular tour of south Wales beginning at Radnor, and includes almost 100 pen and ink illustrations by Frederick L. Griggs, providing as with all of the Highways and Byways series a wonderful mix of topography, local history and folklore, which perhaps more than ever allows the reader to rediscover parts of Britain that have long disappeared under a morass of concrete, motorways and bypasses.
Arthur Bradley undertook only thirteen 'tours' on which he reported in the Highways and Byways in South Wales, reviewed in the chapters of this publication, although in reality the divisions are only created by the major stops in Bradley's tour, such as Radford; Builth;Lampeter; Cardigan; Fishguard; St. Davids; Pembroke; Kidwelly; Llandeilofawr and Brecknock.
Much of the charm a vigour of the Highways and Byways series, which has stood the test of time is down to the travellers and in the case of South Wales this is no exception.
