Popular Walks in Llanfoist Fawr

Popular Walks in Llanfoist Fawr

by: Brecon Beacons National Park Authority
This book describes six enjoyable circular walks of varying grade and length, based on the three villages of Govilon, Llanfoist and Llanellen. These settlements are all located within Llanfoist Fawr Community, which is situated in the south eastern corner of the Brecon Beacons National Park, close to Abergavenny.

All of the walks utilise stretches of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, which follows one contour, 100 metres above sea level along the side of the Usk Valley. This lock-free stretch of canal remains at the same level for over 23 miles and is one of the longest pounds in the country. All the walks provide magnificent views across the Usk Valley and towards the Black Mountains. Although this area is now predominantly rural, it has a rich industrial past and many fascinating features of this period are described in the walk descriptions. Clear sketch maps support the route directions and interesting commentary for each walk. Attractive colour photographs also illustrate features of each walk.
