Clwyd borders the Irish sea and is classed as
a "Preserved County", i.e it is the areas old name now mainly a
ceremonial term. Following the Government (Wales) Act 1994, which created a
system of unitary authorities, Clwyd was split into various parts. There
were boundary changes in 2003 too. Altogether, it is all very confusing!
Traditionally, the Clwyd area was one of
agriculture but with the Industrial Revolution, coal became important in the
north and the expanding railway system brought tourists, and expansion of Llandudno, Colwyn Bay, Colwyn, Abergele, Rhyl and Prestatyn.
Part of Snowdonia is in the western part.
