preface* 



This volume, covering Wales, the Midlands, and South- 
"West, completes the "Contoiu'" Road Book of England 
in three volumes. The total mileage of the roads "con- 
toured" in this volume is 9,500 miles, which shows that 
the work is complete in every respect. 

The work has been compiled from entirely original 
sources, the information being obtained personally by the 
writer in a survey of each district. The utmost care 
has been taken to ensure perfect accuracy in regard to 
all the miscellaneous information compressed into these 
pages. 

The Author's thanks are due to those gentlemen who 
have so kindly helped at various stages, and whose ready 
assistance has so largely contributed to the accuiac}- of 
the work.

CONTOUR ROAD BOOK OF ENGLAND (IF.) xiii. 

General Notes. 

Routes 1-674 are in the North, and South-East Divisions. 

The district covered by this volume is one of the most delightful 
pai'ts of England for sceneiy. The rugged cliffs, and the bold 
headlands are the distinctive features of the -whole coast from 
Dorset, round Cornwall, to North Wales. The tourist must there- 
fore be content with following the liilliest of roads. Inland the 
counti-y is either very hilly or undulating, with the exception of a 
portion of Somersetshire, where it is flat. 

The roads are all more or less hilly, but some of the main routes 
throiigh the best scenery are well engineei-ed. Duiing the Autumn 
Militaiy Manoeuvi-es the roads over Salisbury Plain are comjdetely 
broken up with the traffic over them, and are often impassable. 

The Cathedrals at Exeter, Truro, Wells, Bristol, Bath, Salisbury, 
Gloucester, Worcester, and Lichfield are worth visiting. Those in 
Wales are of no gi-eat interest. Visit also the fine ruins of Tintem 
Abbey and Glastonbury Abbey. Of Castles and laiins of castles 
there are few in the South, but in Wales, and near its borders ; 
those at Chepstow, Raglan, Ludlow, Harlech, Carnarvon, and 
Conway, are in i-emarkably good preservation. 

The best scenery is in Carnarvonshire and Merioneth; and at 
Llangollen, Barmouth, Aberystwyth, Wye Valley, Tenby, Ludlow, 
Wai'wick ; the Devonshire, Cornwall, and Dorset Coast; and the 
Mendip and Malvern Hiils. "Shakespeare's country" is at Strat. 
ford-on- Avon.

At fii-st glance, the spelling and pronunciation of the Welsh 

names is very puzzling, but this is owing to some of the letters of 

the Welsh alphabet being used to produce ditferent sounds from the 

English. For all practical pur^joses it is enough to know that : — 

Ll-thl; dd = th; ic=uovoo: u = i; c^k; f-V ; and.?7'=/. 

These will enable the beginner to master the initial stages, but, 
to be accurate, there is a subtle inflexion which has no English 
equivalent, and that can only be learned viva voce.

It is only right to saj' that the place names owe their length to 
being compound words, and when the letters are run together 
some extraordinaiy combinations are produced. The name that 
has sutfered most is Llanfair-pwll-gwyngyll, in Anglesea, known as 
Llanfair (P.G.), which is made to appear as : — 

Llanfairpwllgwj-ngjilgogerchwymdrobwlltysiliogogoch, or 

Llanfaiii^wllgwyngj'/ltiisiliologogoch, aiul other variations. 

The tennination to the original name is apocryphal, and consists 
merely of a more minute description of the locality. 

Llan means church, and the common compounds Llanfair (Church 
St. Mary); Llanfihangel (Church St. Michael); and Llansantflraid 
(Church St. Bridey, are the initial stages of the longer words. The 
names are usually simple, thus, the church of St. Bride on the 
banks of the Conway : LlansantfFraid-glan-Conway.

Xamp=Xigbting ^Tables. 

(See Index of Towns on next page.) 

The time of sunset for each date \aries from ^car to >ear, these 
Tables therefore are not absolutely exact, but yi%e an average which 
is never more than a few minutes out, on any date. 

To use the Tables. — Find the district required on the next page, 
and add the time allowance to the column named, and opposite the 
required date. For example, the average time for lighting lamps 
at Coventry on June 21 is obtained as follows: — Co\entry, add 
6 minutes to column F on June 21, which is 9.19. The average hour 
for lighting lamps is therefore 9.25 p.m. 

For dates not in Table take the proportion between the two nearest.

xviii. CONTOUR ROAD BOOK OF ESGLASD (ir.) 



Explanation of Diagrams. 

The line bordering the shaded portion of the Plan is a 
facsimile of the profile of tlie Route, and is divided by vertical 
lines into miles, and by horizontal lines into contoui"s of 100 feet, 
so that distances and heights are ascertained qnickly. 

The blocks show the positions of the villages and houses, while 
the signs are the road directions : — < Road Fork, forward 
journey, > ditto reverse, + Cross Roads, ± Road Junction, fl 
Bridge, t indicates a shaiii turn. The directions R (right) and 
L (left) for the forward journey are above the Road Line, those 
of the revei-se below. 

The vertical scale has necessarily been enlarged out of strict pro- 
portion, as otlierwise the ordinary Gradients would almost have 
been imjHjrceptible. 



Explanation of Letterpress. 

The diagram should be consulted first, as the letterpress is 
appended to it. Places named in brackets are otf the road. 

The Description sttites the quality of the road, and it should 
be observed that the " Class " refers solely to the construction of 
the road, and not to its surface. Class I. is a superior, broad, and 
finely -made road. Class II. is the ordinary main road. Class III. 
is of inferior construction, iisually narrow, or hilly. Roads of 
this class are usually very old, or have been constructed in an 
inferior manner. 

Gradients. — l in 25; i.e., l foot of rise in 2o, is a fairly easy 
hill, 1 in 20 is stiff. 1 in 15 is steep. Cyclists usually walk uj) a hill 
of 1 in 17. A descent does not generally become dangerous till 
it is 1 in 15 and then only with a sharp turn, but witli anything 
steeper the danger increases. A little experience of one or two 
hills will be a permanent guide. On nearly every hill the gradient 
varies every few yarels. Those given here represent ajjproxiniately 
the general slope, and in most cases the maximum is given. 

Milestones. — The exact points from which these are measured 
are named. Where the measurements in this work differ from 
those given on the milestones, the difference in distance between 
the starting points, and other variations, is the cause. 

Measurements. — The tabular form gives the distance from 
any one point to another, the number below the one name and 
opposite the other being the distance I'einiired. For clearness 
the furlongs have been put in the tables as J ths. 

Principal Objects of Interest.— These are only notes- 
details can be found in almost any guide book. 

Hotels or Inns- — It has been found difficult to decide whether 
certain small houses should be inserted or not. The tourist there- 
fore should not exi)ect much of some of them, as they are the only 
accommodation available. 

At intervals throughout the hook, numbei'S have been left blank, 
to enable new routes to be added when required.

rather easier after Honiton. The road has splendid surface, 
and is of uniform quality throughout, but it is unusually 
steep and hilly for such a superior road. Although many

turn are at Yarcombe and Shaftesbury, the others are all 
straight and wide. The old direct road from Honiton to 
Chard is shown in dotted lines.

701 Ilfracombe to Minehead. 

Description.— Class II. The worst main road in the 
south of England. From Ilfracombe to Combe ]Martin the 
road has fine surface, but is very steep ; thereafter it is a 
long ascent, very steep at first, then easier, then steep, but 
with good surface to Blackmoor Sta. From Blackmoor Sta, 
to Parracombe the surface is good to close to that place, 
when the road drops suddenly into the village and rises 
agam on the other side with a perfectly precipitous gradi- 
ent and with wretched surface; good surface again for the 
next four miles, then another dangerous descent, before 
Barbrook Mill. The road then descends to Lynmouth by a 
sheer descent with an awkward twist at the bottom — about 
the most dangerous hill in the country. From L^-nmouth 
the road rises by a two mile ascent of a somewhat similar 
description, but after Countisbury it is easier, and for the 
next 7m. is \isualh- good, but inclined to be ijoft ; the road 
then descends to Porlock by another sheer descent, with two 
twists iiear the bottom ; there is scarcely any surface to 
this jmrt of the road — it is more like a river bed^but a new 
descent (sho-vvii dotted) has been made to Porlock from Oar 
Post, a mile longer, with better surface. Fine surface, but 
a hilly road from Porlock to Minehead.

702 Taunton to Barnstaple. 

Description.— Class II. As far as Milverton the road has 
fine surface, and slight gradients, but close to that place it 
becomes hilly, and after AViveliscombe the hills are very long 
to Venn Cross Station, whence the gradients are easier to 
Banipton. From Bampton to South Molton the road is good 
at first, but after Stukeridge Bridge it rather degenerates 
in quality, and although the gradients are not very steep, it 
is sometimes a very heavy road. Near South Molton there 
are two very dangerous hills, and thereafter to Barnstaple 
the road is more or less hilly, with a dangerous descent 
to Swimbridge. There is a more direct road (shown by 
dotted lines) between Bampton and Stukeridge Bridge, a 
mile shorter, but rather steep.

654 GLOUCESTERSHIRE. 

SS2 Gloucester to Chipping Norton. 

Description. — Class I. & III. The best road from Glou- 
cester to Andoversford is through Cheltenham, the moi-e 
direct road being dangerously steep, as shown at foot. 
Fine surface all the way to Andoversford, although the 
road near Cheltenham is at times wery bumpy. This part 
is the London road. After Andoversford the road has fair 
surface all the way to Chij^ping Norton, but there are 
quite a number of steep and dangerous hills as far as Stow, 
but these can mostly be avoided by following a side road 
past Notgrove Station. From Stow to Chii:)ping Norton, 
the direct road, shown dotted, is very steep; the longer 
route by Churchhill, that is usually followed, avoids the 
steep hills, and has excellent surface. There is another and 
almost better road by Adlestrop Station and Kingham to 
Churchhill. As a through route this road cannot be recom- 
mended ; the road by Burf ord and Witney is much easier 
when going eastwards.

GLOUCESTER AXD 310 N MOUTH. 



3oO Gloucester to Newport (Monmouth). 

Description. — Class I. Although this seems a round- 
abotit road, it is by far the best and quickest, owing to the 
hilly country intervening. The direct route to Monmouth 
via Colef ord is sho-wai below ; the direct route to Newport 
is Route 886, but both are much steeper than this route. 

From Gloucester to Ross, see Route 876 ; thereafter magni- 
ficent surface the whole way to Newport, but with a rough 
and dangerous hill at \yhitchurch. The road by Coleford 
has fair surface, but dangerous hills ; but from Coleford 
to Monmouth by Staunton is even better than by Redbrook.

GLOWCESTER AND MONMOUTH. 



8SO Gloucester to Cardiff. 

Description. — Class II. Although this is the direct road, 
it is exceedingly hillj between Newnham and Chepstow, and 
as these hills are very steep, the road round by Eoss and 
Monmouth, Route 885, is much to be preferred. At first 
the surface is very good to Newnham, but after that there 
is a succession of steep and dangerous hills, but with very 
fair sui'face, to Chepstow ; thereafter the road, though 
somewhat hilly as far as Caerwent, has ver^' good surface, 
but is rather bumpy round about Newport and Cardiff, 
owing to heavy traffic. 

Gradients.— Mostly dangerous. At 14m. 1 in 10 ; 14Jm. 1 in

702 WARWICK. 



035 Coventry to Newcastle (Continued). 

Between Coventry and Lichfield there are a number of 
hills as far as "Whitacre, and beyond that, only slight inclines 
to Fazeley ; thereafter only one hill to Lichfield. (Note to 
turn to left at Two Gates, thus avoiding Tamworth, and a 
bvimpy piece of road.) From Lichfield to Rugeley the road 
given here, though not the most direct, has fine surface and 
easy grades. The direct road (shown dotted) has some rather 
stiff inclines. From Eugeley to Newcastle the road is flat 
for ten miles, to Sandon, whence there are some slight hills 
between that place and Newcastle. The road throughout 
has magnificent surface, and is a splendid, broad highway. 

For Chester (R. 265), turn off at Meaford, 50hn. For 
Stafford (R. 967), at "Wolseley Bridge, 36|m. For Longton, 
at Trentham, 54m. For Stoke and Hanley (R. 958), at Trent 
Vale, 55im. Newcastle to Manchester (R. 244), 36gm. ; to

WARWICK. 



O3o Coventry to Shrewsbury. 

Description,— Class 11. Although the main route to 
Shrewsbury is through Birmingham, this road avoids the 
18 miles of Black Countr}' that is most objectionable, both 
owing to hea\y traffic, slag heaps, and spouting furnaces^ 
At several points the surface on this road is a little loose, 
but the surface is generally in good condition to Cannock, 
whence the road has splendid surface to Cracklej^ Bank. 
From there to Wellington the road is rough and steep, and 
it is almost better to go round by Shifnal. Note not to go 
straight forward past Oakengates, as the road is narrow and 
very steep ; follow the route by Snedshill and Ketley Bank, 
or by Shifnal. From Wellington to Shrewsbury, see 
Route 949. 

The road from Lichfield (shown dotted) joins in at Brown- 
hills (Rising Sun Inn) ; it has good surface. The old Chester 
Road to Newport branches off to R. at 43|m. 

Gradients.— At 5im. 1 in 20 ; 8im. 1 in 14; 8^m. 1 in 22 ;

728 STAFFORDSHIRE. 



05S Wolverhampton to Tamworth. 

Description.— Class II. A rather bumpy road, with car 
lines, to "Walsall, thereafter very fair surface, but a wind- 
ing country road, somewhat difficult to follow owing to the 
numerous turns and forks. It is not a main road, but is 
extensively iised.

Principal Objects of Interest.— Manufacturing district 
between Wolverhampton and Walsall ; some fairly good 
views are obtained from the higher parts. 



956 Wolverhampton to Lichfield. 

Description.— Class II. & III. Of the two roads shown, 
the direct route by Bloxwich is by no means the better ; it 
lies through the manufacturing districts of Wednesfield 
and Bloxwich, and through the collieries at Brownhills ; 
the surface is therefore much cut up, and there is often 
loose material on the road. By Walsall the road is con- 
siderably superior, and is kept in better order.

O5o Wolverhampton to Newcastle. 

Description,— Class II. The main route to Liverpool,, 
^Manchester, &c. For the first mile the road is bumpy, but 
immediately after, the surface improves, and is in perfect 
condition to Newcastle. The road is almost level, excepting 
a few slight undulations before Stafford, the hill over to 
Stone, and some hiUs near Trentham. 

For Longton (SO^m.), turn to right at Stone, or Trentham, 
preferably the latter. For Stoke and Hanley, turn to right 
at Trent Vale. Newcastle to JManchester (R. 244), 363m. ; 
to Liverpool (R.231 ), o2lm.. The road avoiding Stone (which 
the telegraph wires follow), saves a very small distance.

078 Shrewsbury to Stafford. 

Description. — Class II. There are two roads between 
ShreAYsbury and Newport ; the longer, and best road, 
through Wellington, has splendid surface and very slight 
gradients for eleven miles. From Wellington to Newport 
the surface is also excellent, but it is not nearly so good 
as the first section of the road. The more direct road to 
Newport is shown at foot; the surface on it is very good, 
but several hills detract considerably from what is a very 
fair road. There is a dangerous descent before Newport. 

From Newport to Stafford the road has very good surface, 
but there is a dangerous hill three miles from Stafford.

31 CoRWEN TO Barmouth. [1031] 

Description.— Class II. The shortest and best road from 
C'orwen to Bala is by Drnid. and although the surface is a 
trifle loose, the perfect engineering makes this a fast road, 
as the rise is very gradual. The route by Llandrillo has 
steeper hills, but prettier scenery. From Bala to Dolgelley 
the road is very good, as far as Llanuwchllj-n, where turn 
to right at fork, along a bad road. From this point, for 
a))out six miles, the road is all loose stones and grass ; but 
the cyclist can usually find a narrow track. After Drwsy- 
nant Station the surface at once improves, and is in good 
condition all the way to Dolgelley, which lies on the other 
side of the river from the road. From Dolgelley to Bar- 
mouth the surface is also very good, but there are a number 
of short steej) hills, and those near Barmouth are slightly 
<langerous. The distance round Bala Lake is eleven miles. 
"West side, good surface ; east side, fair.
