A guidebook to 45 contrasting day walks in the Brecon Beacons National Park, South Wales, UK, Europe, from centres including Llandovery, Brecon, Crickhowell, Abergavenny and Hay-on-Wye, covering the four main areas: Mynydd Du, Fforest Fawr, Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains. The Brecon Beacons is a place of diverse landscapes - majestic valleys, dramatic waterfalls and high mountain peaks and ridges. The circular walks in this guide avoid the better-known routes to explore unfrequented wooded gorges and upland valleys and are suitable for all abilities and all seasons. The authors' aim is to offer the reader a 'solitary guided walk' - the opportunity to enjoy the wilderness, accompanied by all the geological, historical, botanical and other facts that a bevy of expert guides might provide. Routes are split into seven geographical groups and indexed for areas of interest and difficulty and the detailed route descriptions are packed with information for walkers and walk leaders. All illustrated with OS map extracts, geological diagrams and colour photographs.

Whitbread Award Winner: A novel by the author of In Patagonia, about a pair of twins and their long, remarkable lives in the farmlands of Wales. For forty-two years, identical twins Lewis and Benjamin Jones have shared a bed, a farm, and a life. But the world has scarred and warped them each in different ways. Lewis is sturdy, still strong enough at eighty to wield an ax all day, and though he’s hardly ever ventured outside his little village on the English border, he dreams of far-off lands. Benjamin is gentler, a cook whose favorite task is delivering baby lambs, and even in his old age, he remains devoted to the memory of his mother. The unusual twins have seen a country change and an empire fall, and in their shared memory lies an epic story of the century that remade Britain. From the stories of their father’s youth to their own dotage, there is nothing these farmers haven’t seen—or heard. Famed travel author Bruce Chatwin brings his unique understanding of landscape and culture to his debut novel, an intense examination of a little patch of Wales. Winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize and the Whitbread Literary Award, and written in the tradition of Wuthering Heights and The Mayor of Casterbridge, this entry on the list of “1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die” is an all-time classic from the author of bestsellers such as In Patagonia and The Songlines. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Bruce Chatwin including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

This inspiring guide describes 82 walking routes to the highest points (?tops') of the UK's 91 historic counties in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, from Inverness-shire's Ben Nevis (1344m) to Huntingdonshire's Boring Field (80m), visiting 10 national parks and numerous Areas of Outstanding National Beauty, including the Cairngorms, Dartmoor and the Lake District. There are a range of walks for all abilities and something for everyone, wherever they are in the UK, whether at home, on holiday or just travelling through. The graded routes range from strolls over easy ground to mountaineering expeditions. Some rank among the finest summits in the UK: Ben Lomond, Helvellyn, Pen y Fan, The Cheviot, Scafell Pike, Slieve Donard and Worcestershire Beacon. Others appear in unlikely places such as a military firing zone in Yorkshire and a back garden in south-east London and every top has its own story. The author was the first person to reach all 91 tops in one trip without motorised transport and recorded his adventure in his first book ?Heights of Madness'. Here he shares his routes, top tips and interesting facts about the tops and the historic counties. Illustrated with OS maps, sketch maps and colour photographs.
