MWS visited Dolgellau, with Percy Florence ∗Shelley, between late June and late August 1841. They went to Monmouthshire (often regarded at the time as part of England) in autumn 1847. The restless, jaded Lodore ‘wandered into’ the Rhayader area where he meets Cornelia (NSW 6.38–9) and ‘The Invisible Girl’ is set in Wales.
