Glyndŵr’s Way

Officially published as one of the 19 National Trails in 2002, Glyndŵr’s Way is therefore one of the youngest of Britain’s great long distance paths. Entirely located within the Mid-Wales county of Powys, 132 miles of tough walking in exceptional scenery awaits the adventurous. Starting in Knighton, the way celebrates the history of one of Wales most famous heroes, but without actually taking the walker to very many of the historic sites connected with Owain Glyndŵr – last seen in 1412 and also the last native Welshman to hold the title “Prince of Wales”.

Finishing in Welshpool, the walk is a horseshoe shape connecting the lovely towns of Machynlleth, Llanidloes with the villages of Meifod and Llanbrymair, giving the non Welsh speaker hours of fun mid pronouncing the places they visit!
