Walking in the Conwy Valley Guidebook

Walking in the Conwy Valley Guidebook

by: Carl Rogers
The Conwy Valley defends Snowdonia's northeast border and marks the point at which the soft contours of east Wales meet the more rugged terrain of the west. Here the walker can experience a varied landscape of hills, lakes and woodlands, along with wide panoramas of Snowdonia's highest summits. In addition, there are numerous remains from the valley's long and colourful history, such as Edwards I's medieval town and castle at Conwy, the stone coffin of Llywelyn Fawr at Llanrwst and the fine prehistoric burial chamber at Capel Garmon.

This guide contains 20 circular walks located in and around the Conwy Valley which attempt to sample as much of the valley's varied character as possible. Each chapter contains a comprehensive route description along with historical notes and other points of interest and is accompanied by a detailed sketch map.
