Set in the county of Powys in Mid Wales, Glyndwr’s Way is a 132 mile walking trail named after an early 15th century Welsh hero who continually defied the English Crown for twelve years before mysteriously disappearing.
Upgraded in 2002 as one of Britain’s nineteen national walking trails, Glyndwr’s Way is a tough high level route offering fine scenery.
Castles, hillforts, old churches. a former Cistercian Abbey and a narrow gauge steam railway all lie beside the trail, which starts beside Offa’s Dyke at Knighton and ends beside a canal at Welshpool.
The trail connects with the coast path at Machynlleth, and also visits the town of Llanidloes, the villages of Llanbrynmair and Meifod and the dams of of the very scenic reservoirs of Llyn Clywedog and Llyn Vyrnwy.
