Description

Crickhowell Through the Eyes of the Tourist, 1780-1870 by Robert Gant (2009)

The Napoleonic Wars (1789-1815) restricted access to the continent and focussed traveller interest in Britain itself, resulting in a surge of travelogues.

Robert Gant, a geographer, analyses the accounts of 32 writers to see what they can tell us of the physical form and of the economic and social activity in the town during the late Georgian / early Victorian period. Maps and line illustrations and an extensive bibliography.
