Walking Mid Wales' Nature Reserves


Product Description
Product Details


The former Mid Wales county of Radnorshire includes a wide range of nature reserves and conservation areas. To the south of Radnorshire lies the Wye Valley, in or near which can be found a number of reserves several areas of woodland, wildfowl winter feeding grounds and a roadside reserve made up of varied stretches of verge and adjacent ground. Nearby can be found the Begwns, open access hill grazing owned by the National Trust, which provides excellent views to south and north. In the mid-section of the county, between Llandrindod Wells and Kington (just into Herefordshire), reserves include a waterfall gorge with nearby Victorian features, upland moor and wetland, further woodland and a common frequented by ground-nesting birds. Continuing to the northern edge of the county leads to Presteigne, the setting for one of the two urban walks combining meadows, riverside and woodlands. Moving to the north and west leads to Beacon Hill Crown Estate (managed by Radnorshire Wildlife Trust), a substantial area of open moorland, crossed by Glyndwrs Way. The area around Rhayader includes a working organic farm with a wide variety of habitats, further woodland, some within the Elan Valley itself and areas of open hill land. Rhayader is the setting for the second urban walk which includes riverside walks, a churchyard with rare plant and lichen species and an edge of town reserve that includes a bat tunnel. -- Kittiwake
