Reference: Pre 19th century maps and Vols. 36-40 & 113

The National Library of Wales acquired the Gogerddan collection in 1949, and it provides a fascinating insight into the development and eventual decay of a landed estate in Wales. Much of the estate’s land was located in North Ceredigion, but there were also lands held near Machynlleth and further afield.

The main estate was based just outside Aberystwyth near the village of Penrhyn-coch. The mansion and other estate buildings now house the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences, part of the University of Wales, Aberystwyth.

In addition to individual, pre-19th century, maps, the National Library of Wales has also digitised a number of volumes containing complete surveys of parts of the estate.
