Description

Even while rambling in the most rugged and remote parts of Wales, one is liable to stumble upon some mysterious link with the past - a ruined building, a track that leads nowhere, an obviously man-made hole in the ground. All these pose questions that insist on an answer. Mountain expert Kevin Walker has spent hundreds of days tramping the Welsh mountains and moorlands and has uncovered the stories behind some of these special places, which are rich not only in landscape and scenery, but also in heritage and people, myth and legend, past lives and long-forgotten tales. In Undiscovered Wales he presents fifteen one-day circular walks, of varying degrees of difficulty, that pass through locations rich in history. Some walks pass through areas connected with legend, such as the cave where Merlin overdid his spell and unfortunately killed the person he was trying to save. Others captivate with more modern tales, such as the origins of Macnamara's road, or the desperately sade story of little Tommy Jones, aged five. In addition to be background information, each of the walks is described in full with photographs, details of the terrain and sketch maps.
