Glyndŵr’s Way

Buy Me a Coffee at

For 135 miles the Glyndŵr's Way traverses the county of Powys in Wales. The journey takes the walker over a wealth of green hills, and past more sheep than you can shake a stick at.

In a rural area with few people, and even fewer walkers, the Glyndŵr's Way is an ideal walk to get away from the world. Or, indeed, a Royal Wedding.

It's also quite good for bizairre pubs which are stuck in some sort of 1970s timewarp too.

Read about the journey below, or get the ebook. Walking with the Last Prince is available for all good e-readers.

April 2011. I’m in Wales. I’m walking the Glyndŵr’s Way. And I have a notepad. Every night I diligently write down extensive notes. Notes that will make a series of articles for this website; maybe even a book. Who knows.
