The Historic County of Caernarfonshire

Historic Caernarfonshire

• Boundary Changes

Under the Local Government Act 1972, the county and administrative county of Caernarfonshire were abolished, for both local government and ceremonial purposes, on April 1, 1974. The whole of historic Caernarfonshire became part of the newly-formed county of Gwynedd.

Following further local government reorganisation, the county of Gwynedd was re-structured, and on April 1, 1996, the Aberconwy district became part of the newly-formed county borough of Conwy.

• Record Offices and Archives
Gwynedd County Council manages both the Caernarfon Record Office (which holds the Caernarfonshire archives) and the Meirionydd Record Office (which holds the Merionethshire archives).
