Walking the Old Ways of Radnorshire

Walking the Old Ways of Radnorshire

by: Andy and Karen Johnson
The walks in this beautifully produced book have been chosen with the aim of exploring Radnorshire's past, with each walk passing or visiting features about which some background information is given. These include churches, nonconformist chapels, castle sites, dykes, tumuli and other prehistoric remains, Roman forts, a battlefield, medieval houses, spas, upland farming systems, drovers' roads, squatter settlements, inns and a dismantled railway line. Several can only be reached on foot.

They have also been chosen to help you explore Radnorshire's countryside, and occasionally spill over into that of its neighbouring counties, and breathe its good air. Some walks follow river valleys whilst many more wander its rolling hills and provide expansive views. Others explore Radnorshire's towns and their nearby landscape.

The 26 circular walks range from 3.5 to 10.5 miles in length, with the majority being between 4 and 7.5 miles. Each walk has a numbered coloured sketch map and detailed navigation instructions, together with boxed background information about features en route. A brief summary at the beginning of each walk describes the terrain and features. The book is illustrated with over 200 superb colour photographs and has a full index.
