Forgotten Wales

Kevin's popular Forgotten Wales series contains walks exploring the fascinating forgotten history and heritage of Wales.

Produced as a result of the interest generated by his book, Undiscovered Wales, all these downloadable walk descriptions are accompanied by easy-to-follow route instructions, anecdotes and information about the landscape through which you are walking, a sketch map, and several photographs.

Downloads are in .pdf format, and require Adobe Reader.
