This guidebook presents 30 contrasting day walks exploring the mountains, valleys and coastline of Carmarthernshire in south-west Wales. Ranging from 2 to 10 miles in length and suitable for walkers of all abilities, the routes introduce the varied walking on offer in this county, including parts of the Brecon Beacons and the Cambrian Mountains.
Alongside detailed route descriptions and clear OS mapping, the book is packed with interesting information about the places and heritage encountered. Notes on landscape, geology and wildlife of the area are included, and for each walk there is useful practical information on transport and refreshments.
A county of contrasts with around 1850 miles of footpaths, Carmarthernshire is a walker's paradise. Highlights include the Black Mountains (Mynydd Du), the Teifi Valley, Camarthen Bay, the southwestern Coast, and 'Dylan Thomas Country' around Laugharne.
Walk 10, Cil-y-cwm.
The opening paragraph of the description should now read:
‘From St Michael’s Church, which is well worth visiting either before or after the walk, cross the main road through the village, walk along a surfaced alleyway opposite, that runs between cottages and past the chapel, to reach an iron field gate on the right. Walk along the short right edge of the field to a second gate and once through turn left, traversing the bottom of the next three fields to a stile. Once over bear diagonally right through a fourth field, heading towards the summit of Pen Lifau, directly ahead, to eventually negotiate a stile and footbridge in the far right-hand corner. Now join an old boardwalk . . . . . . ‘
Also, on page 77, in the last but one line of the penultimate paragraph of walking text, the ‘footbridge’ mentioned is now a broad concrete bridge over the river.
