History of Aberystwyth
These pages have been set up in the form of a time line. This information is inlayed with key dates from world and UK history so as to place Aberystwyth\'s development into context.

Cadw is a Welsh word which means \'to keep\'. Cadw\'s mission is to protect, conserve, and to promote an appreciation of the built heritage of Wales. The full title of the organization is Cadw: Welsh Historic Monuments Executive Agency, and it is a part of the National Assembly for Wales. Created in 1984, Cadw carries out the complete range of responsibilities for the conservation, presentation, and promotion of the built heritage of Wales on behalf of the National Assembly for Wales.
The Vale of Rheidol Railway
The Vale of Rheidol Railway is one of the Great Little Trains of Wales, and was the last steam railway owned by British Rail until it was privatised in 1989. The VoR Railway runs for 11¾ miles from Aberystwyth to Devil\'s Bridge. The terminus is adjacent to the national network station at Aberystwyth, and on the hour-long journey passengers have spectacular views of the wooded Rheidol Valley - views unseen for decades until the VoRR began its renovation programme ten years ago.
Guild of One Name Studies
The Guild of One-Name Studies is the world\'s leading organisation for one-name studies. A one-name study is a project researching facts about a surname and all the people who have held it, as opposed to a particular pedigree (the ancestors of one person) or descendancy (the descendants of one person or couple).
