Gower, Swansea and Cardiff Walks

Gower, Swansea and Cardiff Walks

by: Dennis and Jan Kelsall
This Pathfinder Guide makes the ideal companion for country walks allowing you to discover the diverse character of this region. It is a fascinating area with superb and varied walking country that comprises a mixture of open moorland, steep hillsides, wooded valleys, fertile lowlands and a magnificent coastline. The latter is not just confined to the well-known coves and beaches of Gower but also includes the Glamorgan coast between Penarth and Port Talbot. Added to this are medieval castles, picturesque churches and attractive villages and towns.

Clear and easy to follow directions are accompanied by detailed Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 scale maps and specially commissioned photographs. With 28 colour-coded routes to choose from, all tried and tested by seasoned walkers and varying from extended strolls to exhilarating hikes, there is a walk to suit all situations. The guide introduces you to the area and highlights the most scenic walks.

Each walk entry begins with a box giving start, distance, height gain, time, parking and route terrain. This is followed by a short overview highlighting the routes features and then detailed route finding instructions which have paragraphs numbered corresponding to numbers on the OS map making navigation safe and easy. There are GPS references for all the route waypoints and the route is highlighted in yellow on the map. The guide also includes information on where to park, good pubs and places of interest along the route.
