Author Harri Roberts is a freelance writer, editor and translator based in Newport, Gwent. He has authored a number of Welsh walking guides, including a forthcoming official guidebook to the Wales Coast Path (Amroth to Swansea section). His love of the Brecon Beacons developed during research for an ambitious guide to the Cambrian Way, a high-level, Welsh ‘end-to-end’ across some of the most scenic and mountainous terrain in the country.
12 circular walks in the Brecon Beacons, highlighting the landscape, beauty and history of the National Park. Easy to follow directions and maps for all walks and how to get there - with added information on pubs, cafes, local attractions and information centres. These include short walks suitable for families and longer routes to satisfy even the most experienced hillwalker.
The Black Mountains are the first and last mountains of Wales. From the top of the easternmost ridge, and astride the border, you can see why a line was drawn here. To the east lie the fertile undulations of the English midlands. To the west, a succession of untamed ridges stretches to the western horizon.
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.
Brecon Beacons Short Walks guide contains 20 circular walks all graded by route and difficulty, perfect for family trips and holidays. From gurgling brooks to turbulent rivers, nestled among sheltered glades to windswept summits, there really is something here for everybody. History abounds, wildlife ekes a living out of every nook and cranny and even the scars of the industrial revolution have left a unique yet attractive mark.
Brecon Beacons Trail Running is a comprehensive guide to off-road running across the national park, including the Black Mountains, the Brecon Beacons themselves and the Black Mountain. With 20 runs from 5.3km to 17.5km in length, this book is suitable for runners of all abilities.
