Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
As far back as the 1830's, proposals were made for a railway route to go to Porth Dinllaen on the Llyn peninsula. These plans were the result of the belief that Porth Dinllaen, rather than Holyhead, would become the main port linking Britain and Ireland.
