Walking in the Brecon Beacons Cicerone Guidebook

Walking in the Brecon Beacons Cicerone Guidebook

authors: David Whittaker and Andy Davies
The Brecon Beacons National Park in South Wales is a place of beautiful and diverse landscapes - majestic valleys, dramatic waterfalls and high mountain peaks and ridges. Mynydd Du has some of the remotest upland wilderness in England and Wales, while Fforest Fawr, a former royal hunting ground, has both upland and deeply incised river gorges and waterfalls. The Brecon Beacons are the highest summits, while the Black Mountains are gentler. The national park is home to both the highest mountain and the tallest waterfall in South Wales.

Even if you think you know this popular walking area, these circular routes will take you to unfrequented wooded gorges and upland valleys that few are aware of. The authors' aim is to offer the reader a 'solitary guided walk' - the opportunity to enjoy the wilderness, accompanied by all the geological, historical, botanical and other facts that a bevy of expert guides might provide.

The book contains 45 circular walks for all abilities, arranged by seven areas and indexed for areas of interest and difficulty and quite a few have shorter and longer options. Routes suitable for year-round walking are included. The selection of routes covers all parts of the National Park. The detailed route instructions are supported with full colour OS Landranger 1:50,000 scale mapping and there are copious stunning colour photographs throughout the book.
