This book places that revolt in its historical and geographic background. The Glyndwr's Way National Trail starts at Knighton on Offa's Dyke and passes close to battlefields, abbeys, historic houses and castles en route to Machynlleth and Welshpool. In addition to following the history of Owain's revolt the path also passes through some of the finest scenery in central Wales. The journey includes the wooded vales of Radnor, the Clywedog valley, the unspoilt areas of old Montgomeryshire and along the Afon Dyfi, perhaps the loveliest river valley in Wales.
The Brecon Beacons National Park stretches from the English border to the Tywi valley in Carmarthenshire, a distance of nearly 50 miles, covering an area of 520 square miles. This swathe of southern Wales is divided into four distinct areas of high ground by the rivers Usk, Taf and Tawe. These rivers, here in their enthusiastic infancy, descend to meet the salt water of the Bristol Channel by the three great cities of the south, Newport, Cardiff and Swansea respectively.
Join Peter Finch and John Briggs on twenty walks around Cardiff, the bustling capital of Wales. Together they visit the new and the ancient, the difficult, the undiscovered, the lesser-known, the artistic, the entertaining, the quirky and the unexpected.
The Offa's Dyke Path is a superb National Trail that runs from the North Wales coast to the Severn Estuary following the line of Offa's Dyke, an impressive 8th-century earthwork along the English/Welsh border. The ever-changing landscape – the Clwydian Range, the Shropshire Hills, the Black Mountains and the Wye Valley – is steeped in history and legend providing 177 miles (285km) of fascinating walking.
