Walking Around Painscastle

Walking Around Painscastle

by: Jane Griffiths
Stretching north from the Wye Valley between Builth Wells and Hay-on-Wye lies a wealth of open access hill land and secluded river valleys. The River Arrow has its source in this area, before flowing east to Kington and a few miles further to the west the Edw follows its course to the Wye. This is an area rich in history, with prehistoric remains including hill forts and stone circles. Castle sites at Painscastle, Hundred House and Gwaunceste Hill provide reminders of the Norman occupation.

For each walk there is a short description outlining its features and difficulty, public transport information and starting point grid reference.
