Walking the Cambrian Way with Richard Tyler, George Tod, Olie Wicks and Will Renwick

A classic Wales mountain trek from Cardiff to Conwy


Crossing the mountainous spine of Wales, the Cambrian Way is a 300 mile route with a rich history and strong sense of community. In this episode of highlights from our Cicerone Live event, we spoke to Cicerone authors Richard Tyler and George Tod (also a Trustee of the Cambrian Way Trust, http://www.cambrianway.org.uk/) and Ramblers Cymru representatives Olie Wicks and president Will Renwick (https://www.ramblers.org.uk/wales.aspx). Our guests discussed the highlights of the route and the legacy of Tony Drake, the task of waymarking the route from Cardiff to Conwy and what it's like to walk the Cambrian Way in 17 days.
