Yes, we know it should have an accent (Glyndŵr’s Way), But it would cause problems with search engines. Apologies to our Welsh speakers!
Glyndwr’s Way starts at Knighton, and passes Llanidloes, Abbeycwmhir and Llanbadarn Fynydd, traversing central Mid Wales to Machynlleth near the Dyfi estuary and returning across Wales via Llanbrynmair, Llangadfan and Lake Vyrnwy and the valley of the River Vyrnwy to Welshpool.
“A complete guide to walking Glyndwr’s Way National Trail. This guidebook divides the 135 mile trail into nine day stages, starting at Knighton and ending at Welshpool. After day 4 there is an optional ascent of Pumlimon Fawr, which will require an extra day. Days 10 and 11 follow the Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail for those who prefer a circular route. The step-by-step route descriptions are accompanied by OS map extracts, photographs and lots of information on facilities available and historical points of interest along the way. Glyndwr’s Way is clearly waymarked throughout and there is accommodation available at the end of every stage, listed in full at the back of the guide to make planning easier. The trail commemorates the Welsh leader Owain Glyndwr, visiting landmarks such as Powis Castle and Glyndwr’s Parliament House at Machynlleth, as well as other historial and archeological sites.”
