Wilfrid J. Hemp: guidebooks

One of the pioneering guidebook writers for heritage sites in Wales was Wilfrid J. Hemp (1882-1962), Inspector of Ancient Monuments for Wales from 1913. He collaborated with (Sir) Charles Reed Peers on the guidebook for Harlech Castle (1927). This was followed by the guide for Flint Castle (1929), Ewloe Castle (1929), Denbigh Castle (1932) [with Ralegh Radford], and Beaumaris Castle (1933). He then prepared a short guide to the burial chamber at Bryn Celli Ddu (1935) on Anglesey
