An interesting collection of 16 circular walks in Carmarthenshire and the Teifi valley (4-9.75 miles in length), comprising clear maps and detailed route notes, including valuable information about the archaeology and history, churches and castles and other points of interest. 27 black-and-white illustrations and 17 maps.
This comprehensive guide is full of essential information for enthusiastic walkers be they serious ramblers, merely amblers or just on a family outing.
It opens with a location map of the area, denoting all the places mentioned, followed by an introduction to the walks and giving detailed descriptions as to the landscape and culture of the regions in question, including photographs of interest. Another asset is the inclusion of place names and their meaning, as well as a few notes on pronunciation.
The maps are simple, clear and easy to follow, with special chapters denoting points of interest along the way. An added bonus is the mention of facilities available, namely tea-houses, toilets, post offices and pubs. Each walk is graded according to difficulty and distance, ranging from four to nine miles in length.
As a regular member of a Ramblers’ Group in the South of Ceredigion I think that, armed with all this invaluable information, this book is a must for the seasoned and inexperienced walker alike.
