"This is a resort for sea-bathing, situated at the low sandy termination of the Vale of Clwyd, and near the outlet of the united rivers Clwyd and Elwy. ... It is altogether a modern creation, and still rapidly extending. ... Its recommendations are, easy access, good hotels and lodging-houses, and some agreeable objects within moderate drives."
[From Blacks Picturesque Guide to North Wales ; 1879]
