Walks Around Penmachno and Ysbyty Ifan

Walks Around Penmachno and Ysbyty Ifan

by: David Berry
Lying within Snowdonia National Park, and close to the tourist hotspot of Betws-y-Coed, is a little known area of attractive river valleys, enclosed upland pasture, open hills, forest and moorland. Within this fascinating landscape can be found two historic Welsh speaking villages. Penmachno stand in the beautiful secluded fertile Machno valley, on an important drovers' route and near Roman roads. Ysbyty Ifan, lying a few miles to the east, stands at an important crossing point on the Conwy River.

The 24 walks in this book visit places of interest, including Ty Mawr, old slate quarries, upland reservoirs and waterfalls. They feature old drovers' routes, a stunning upland quarry tramway, and breath-taking views. They range from easy valley walks to more demanding hill and moorland treks. Each walk begins with an overview summary and details of how to get to the start. Clear route finding instructions follow, together with sketch maps.
