Cambrian Way

Cambrian Way

by: Tony Drake
The Cambrian Way is a remarkable and spectacular south coast to north coast walk across Wales from Cardiff to Conwy. Tony Drake, pioneer of the Cambrian Way, brought many years of experience as a footpath conservationist to the planning of this superb route for the discerning mountain walker and wrote the guidebook. In March 2012 Tony passed away but had facilitated the creation of the Cambrian Way Trust who have fully revised and published this new edition of the guide.

The route has been well researched to follow public rights of way or access land over mountain and moorland. It is a fine three week walk through scenically superb and largely unfrequented mountain country. This is a walk for the mountain connoisseur and requires good navigational skills and much stamina to complete its 288 miles and 67,000 feet of ascent.

Undertaking an expedition of this magnitude requires careful planning and that is what this guide provides. Tony Drake, in his usual thoughtful and meticulous way, had covered every aspect of both planning and executing the walk and this is retained in this edition. The route is described in three sections:
Southern from Cardiff to Llandovery via Abergavenny, the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons
Central from Llandovery to Dinas Mawddwy via Elenydd, Devil's Bridge and Plynlimon
Northern from Dinas Mawddwy to Conwy via Cader Idris, Barmouth, the Rhinogs and Snowdon.

Each of these main sections is broken down into sub-sections with clear route finding instructions, highly detailed sketch maps, distances and total height gain. There are references to Ordnance Survey maps, as careful map and compass navigation will be required in places. There is also a stage planner and an accommodation and services listing.
