Summary Description

The remains of an early class settlement were discovered in the 1890’s when the land was being levelled for a tennis court. The cathedral was closely associated with the Princes of Gwynedd. The city really developed with the arrival of Telford road built for the Irish Mail coaches and then the Railway arrived in 1850. Education was important with the arrival of the Normal College in 1858 for training nonconformist teachers and St Mary’s College, founded in Caernarfon in 1856 and then transferred to Bangor. The main event was the founding of the University College of North wales (University of Wales) in 1884. The present city is a commercial and administrative centre for North West wales with a General Hospital and the now University of Bangor Reference Buildings of Wales –Gwynedd 2009 Cadw Listing Notice.
