Denbighshire parishes & townships
Whilst the original maps can be viewed at up to 6400% these maps below are low resolution (50%) as they are only intended to accurately position parishes within the county.
The maps are unfortunately confusingly fragmented, it may help to look at the approximation (very) diagram at the bottom
There is a finding aid here
1. DEN is on the left of the yellow county line in this section
2. DEN is north of the yellow line in this section (lines up below section 1)
3. This section lines up with the brown numbers 52 & 49 in the bottom right of section 2
4.This section, left of and below yellow line, lines up with the right hand side of sections 1 & 2
