Live video: the Cambrian Way with George Tod, Richard Tyler, Olie Wicks and Will Renwick
Ever thought about crossing the mountainous spine of Wales in one epic journey? Listen in to hear about the Cambrian Way from Cicerone authors, George Tod and Richard Tyler, and Ramblers Cymru representatives Will Renwick and Olie Wicks.
Crossing the length of Wales from Cardiff to Conwy and divided into 21 stages, the Cambrian Way is a near 300 mile route with a rich history and strong sense of community. First proposed in the 1960s by Tony Drake, the Cambrian Way is testament to his legacy and his work is continued by multiple organisations including the Cambrian Way Trust and Ramblers Cymru (previously the Ramblers' Association).
Watch the recording of the event to discover all about this mountainous trekking route from four guests who know and love Wales' answer to the Pennine Way. Richard Tyler and George Tod, authors of the Cicerone guidebook to the Cambrian Way, join us to discuss where the route goes and the history and landscape it passes through. Olie Wicks from Ramblers Cymru describes the jigsaw-like task of waymarking the route, while Ramblers Cymru president Will Renwick shares his experience of crossing the ridges and wilderness of Wales in 17 days.
Find out more about the Cambrian Way on the Cambrian Way Trust website, and about Ramblers Cymru on their website or Facebook page. You can also experience a first hand account of walking the route by watching Will Renwick's YouTube video of his Cambrian Way adventure.
