Walking Wales: The Art lover's Guide to Wye Valley Way

If you fancy taking up the challenge of a long-distance trek, this is the book to help you put it into practice. 

The Wye Valley Way is 136 miles, from Chepstow to Plynlimon, and can be done in 15 days with careful planning. Tips to prepare and train, notes on B&B's along the way, plus old paintings of Welsh towns you pass through. Time for a challenge?!

Start the Wye Valley Way in Chepstow near the Welsh borders in the south, trek up through Ross on Wye, Monmouth, straying into England and Herefordshire, then on to Rhayader, Llangurig, then to the source of the River Wye at Plynlimon.

Walking Wales: The Art Lover's Guide to Wye Valley Way is based on the author's 15-day trek, staying overnight in B&B accommodation, this was basically two 'mature'  ladies tramping through the countryside, as Jacqueline says, "and life's too short to camp!"

Although it takes you along the route in some detail, it is clearly not the book you drag around with you on the walk itself! The detailed route guide already available that is a must, and you can have an official  “Passport” stamped along the way to prove you did it. 

The focus is on special landmarks and scenery that  artists have loved for centuries, with 40 images of old paintings from the 18th - 20th century  from National Library of Wales collections.

The slide show opposite (<<<) includes a little bit from the journal, some great photographs and wonderful old paintings. Must be time to plan your trek!

Coming soon: A Meander Through Wales

There is a new series of E-books  coming later in 2022 - A Meander Through Wales.

Fancy travelling around and exploring but by public transport instead of the car? These new titles will take you meandering around South Wales and around North Wales by bus, train, steam train, and on foot.

So much more to see as you trundle through small villages and along narrow coastal lanes by service bus.
