Administrative and biographical history: Civil parish councils were established by the Local Government Act 1894. The records can include minute books, financial statements, correspondence, copies of planning applications, and rate lists. Community councils replaced parish councils under the local government reorganization in 1974. Llangollen Rural Parish Council, covering the area not administered by Llangollen Urban District Council, was located in the county of Denbighshire until 1974, when its roles were taken over by Llangollen Community Council and Denbighshire became part of Clwyd. It is now in the new county of Denbighshire. The Council accumulated some earlier documents relating to the area. The parish of Llangollen had been part of Corwen Poor Law Union.
