This is a journal kept by Miss Jinny Jenks of Enfield during her tour of North Wales in the summer of 1772. She spends most of her time in the Vale of Clwyd and describes the scenery, the people and the houses in which she stays.

Jinny Jenks' enthusiasm for the country and the people is apparent in her writing and she often expresses her desire to return to Wales. It is not known whether she ever had the opportunity to do so and according to a note at the back of this manuscript, Jinny Jenks died six years after this journal was written, in 1778, aged 41.
