COVID-19: We are now working from home, because of the coronavirus. We will continue to add more names to the List, to data-cleanse, and to respond to enquiries. However, we will no longer be organising talks or workshops until the situation improves.

   

The List of Historic Place Names of Wales is a groundbreaking and innovative resource that contains hundreds of thousands of place names collected from historical maps and other sources. It provides a fascinating insight into the land-use, archaeology and history of Wales.

  • To search for a specific place name use the Search box at the top of this page. 

  • To look for all place names in a particular location, select Map and then pan, zoom or use the Map Search tool to centre the map on a location or postcode.

You can also help to enhance the list by using our comments system to add additional information.
