About Glyndŵr’s Way: Glyndŵr’s Way carves a beautiful and remote 135 mile loop through the open moorland, rolling farmland and forests of mid-Wales. Starting at Knighton on the English/Welsh border, the path passes west across the mid-Wales hills to Machynlleth and carves a trail back to finish in Welshpool. The complete trail is a 9-10 day long distance walk, but can be enjoyed as a series of day walks for day/weekend visitors.

About Owain Glyndŵr: In September 1400, Owain Glyndŵr embarked on a course of action that would become one of the most extraordinary episodes in Welsh history. A longstanding argument with a neighbour over some common land took a surprising turn when, after being proclaimed Prince of Wales by his followers, Glyndŵr began a revolt that would turn into all out war with the English crown. Despite some astounding early victories, Glyndŵr’s rebellion ultimately failed, destroying his reputation but ensuring his place in Welsh history.
