Llanafan-Fawr and Llanfihangel Brynpabuan in 1833

The above map is an enlarged section of an Ordnance Survey map made at a scale of 1 inch = 1 mile in 1833. Although it is not  detailed, it does shows the area at the turn of the nineteenth century roughly at the time REES LEWIS was born. The shading on the map gives an indication of the topography of the area surrounding the villages - both Llanafan Fawr and Llanfihangel Brynpabuan developed on the slopes on either side of the Chwefru river.

The road passing through both hamlets is the old road which connects the Wye valley and the routes down into West Wales through Llanwrtyd. To the North of the map we can see tracks and roads going off to the farms and holdings on the slopes of the high ridges.
