Walks around Hay-on-Wye Guidebook

Walks around Hay-on-Wye Guidebook

by: Les Lumsdon and Mike Ledlie
What makes Hay-on-Wye so appealing is the exceptional diversity of landscapes, from the serenity of the Wye to the etched outlines of the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons. In this book, several walks feature Hay itself, but there are as many in the Golden Valley, a few miles to the east.

It is one of the quietest corners of Herefordshire and the foothills leading to the Black Mountains are magical. Almost each and every settlement has a castle mound and Norman church situated nearby, a reflection of harsher medieval times. Now these places are sleepy enclaves, many of which have good footpath networks that are walked, but not by many.

The book contains 20 mainly circular walks from 3 to 12 miles in length, but most are around 6 miles. Each walk entry includes an overview description and instructions on how to get to the start. Clear route finding instructions with numbered paragraphs corresponding to numbers on the detailed sketch maps ensure easy navigation.
