Glyndwr's Way

Glyndwr's Way

by: Ronnie and Chris Catling
Glyndwr's Way, named after Owain Glydwr who led the Welsh in a rebellion against the English in the 15th century, is the third National Trail in Wales and a fitting tribute to Wales's greatest hero. The route runs from Knighton to Welshpool, a distance which this guide estimates to be 143 miles (230.5 km). At Welshpool the Trail links with the Offa's Dyke National Trail to create a 172 mile circular walk back to Knighton. The Way passes through farmland, forestry and open hill country, following old Roman roads, drover's roads and modern public rights of way. The route is full of interest, with varied flora and fauna and many historical sites relating to Owain Glyndwr.

The book describes the route in twelve sections, providing information on places of interest, as well as practical facilities walkers need, such as shops, post offices and eating places. The route is illustrated with OS Landranger mapping to support the descriptive text, together with colour photographs of places of interest. The guide also provides the historic background to Owain Glyndwr and the Welsh Revolt and details a number of prophecies, myths, legends and traditions surrounding him.
