A guidebook to 45 contrasting day walks in the Brecon Beacons National Park, South Wales, UK, Europe, from centres including Llandovery, Brecon, Crickhowell, Abergavenny and Hay-on-Wye, covering the four main areas: Mynydd Du, Fforest Fawr, Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains. The Brecon Beacons is a place of diverse landscapes - majestic valleys, dramatic waterfalls and high mountain peaks and ridges. The circular walks in this guide avoid the better-known routes to explore unfrequented wooded gorges and upland valleys and are suitable for all abilities and all seasons. The authors' aim is to offer the reader a 'solitary guided walk' - the opportunity to enjoy the wilderness, accompanied by all the geological, historical, botanical and other facts that a bevy of expert guides might provide. Routes are split into seven geographical groups and indexed for areas of interest and difficulty and the detailed route descriptions are packed with information for walkers and walk leaders. All illustrated with OS map extracts, geological diagrams and colour photographs.

Within the boundaries of the Brecon Beacons National Park there are four separate mountain ranges, including the Black Mountains as well as the Beacons themselves. Most of the area is underlain by old red sandstone, which distinguishes it from the more rugged mountains of North Wales, and several walks explore this terrain of smooth, sweeping grassy uplands and wide, open vistas, including the Brecon Beacons Horseshoe. By extending some walks to the south of the mountains, in the valleys, vale and coast of Glamorgan (including Llantwit Major and the Heritage Coast), the scope of scenic and historic attractions is extended.

David Lloyd George left a profound political legacy, despite being described by the wife of his successor, Herbert Asquith, as a ‘gambler without foresight’. He is, of course, best known as the Prime Minister who led Britain to victory in World War I, but his contribution to domestic politics was similarly impressive. As Chancellor of the Exchequer he introduced pensions and national insurance against sickness and unemployment, while as Prime Minister he extended democracy by giving votes to women. Yet Lloyd George was compromised by his flaws as a human being. Vain, cruel, capricious and dishonest, at times his notoriously corrupt nature threatened to damage the British political system. Providing a unique new perspective on one of the most phenomenally-talented – but also one of the most phenomenally-flawed – of British Prime Ministers, this book will be essential reading for anyone interested in modern British politics and history.
