Walks Around Llandrindod Wells

Walks Around Llandrindod Wells

by: Jane Griffiths
Llandrindod Wells, the county town of Powys, has a wealth of Victorian and Edwardian buildings, as well as formal and informal parks and gardens. A network of recently improved footpaths surrounds the town, connecting with local beauty spots at Cefnllys and Alpine Bridge, the woodlands to the north of the town, the remains of the Roman fort at Castell Collen and across the hill to the nearby village of Howey.

A network of train, bus and Post Bus services centred on Llandrindod Wells makes linear walking a practical option in the area and six of the walks described make use of this facility, creating an additional sense of achievement in arriving at the destination. Each walk chapter begin with a brief description of the walk to help you make a choice, plus details of how to get to the start. The route finding instructions are clearly described and are supported by detailed sketch maps.
