Walks Around Meifod

Walks Around Meifod

by: Mike Lister
Situated amid rolling countryside in the beautiful Vyrnwy Valley, Meifod is a very ancient settlement and many of the surrounding hills are topped with earthworks of the Bronze Age and the Roman period. The surrounding hills and woodland have a plethora of footpaths and tracks that are open to the walking public.

This book gives walks for various abilities using a combination of these paths with distances mainly between 4 and 7 miles. Although most of the walks use Meifod as a starting point the villages of Pont Llogel, Pontrobert and Bwlch-y-cibau in and adjacent to the Vyrnwy Valley are also included. There is even a short walk around Meifod village showing a brief history of the principal buildings.

A detailed description and a sketch map enable each walk to be followed without difficulty. Directions to get to the start of each walk are provided, together with distance and estimated time. By using a combination of these walks it is possible to walk from Pont Llogelin in the west of the valley, through the villages of Dolanog, Pontrobert, Meifod and continue tp Bwlch-y-cibau in the east.
