1986 THE HENRYD REGION
This is a region of lowland in the lower part of the Conwy Valley between Conwy to the north and Rowen to the south. Apart from the small village of HENRYD it is entirly rural, and the settlement pattern is typically dispersed - mostly small mixed farms with the occasional inn or hotel. Although it is lowland it is far from uninteresting as the underlying rocks include SILURIAN GRITS which are resistant enough to produce steep little hills and rocky outcrops, some of them reaching 350' above sea level. In between the valleys are filled with glacial deposits, mainly reddish boulder clay, although glacial sands also occur notably in the kame mound which forms the prominent hill south west of BACLAW FARM. Many of the hills are crowned with small deciduous woods.
