50 Gems of Mid Wales Summary

50 Gems of Mid Wales: The History & Heritage of the Most Iconic Places by Geoff Brookes

Mid Wales remains untouched. It is an expansive and peaceful region, stretching across Wales from Cardigan Bay to the English border, a place to reflect and relax and discover the fascinating secrets of Paradwys Cymru, the paradise of Wales. Here are the significant moments in Welsh history, the politics and the murder, the ruined mansions and abbeys, and the forgotten battlefields. This book will take you there. You will visit places along the border, where Wales and England mix across Offa's Dyke and then reach out into the heart of Wales where the Welsh language rules. From the Victorian splendour of Llandrindod Wells to the serenity of Soar y Mynydd, from the beauty of Lake Vyrnwy to the wilderness of the Hafod Estate, these are the places which help to define Wales and make it such a special and endlessly fascinating country.
