3rd September - Owain Glyndwr Tour
Tony & Tina from Port Talbot undertook an historical tour of the life of Owain Glyndwr. Starting at Presteigne, we visited his birthplace of Sycharth, near Oswestry, his home near Corwen in the Dee Valley, Dolgellau and Machynlleth, the site of his first parliament. On our returm to the Radnorshire town, we visited the site of the Battle of Bryn Glas, Pilleth, where Glyndwr defeated the men of Edmund Mortimer.
The Glyndwr tour was one of a number of specialist historial tours that we offer at Exploring Mid Wales.
10th September - a Monmouthshire tour.
Debby & Jeff, from Phoenix, Arizona were staying at Pen y Bryn House, Llangorse when they realised that they would prefer a guide for the day to show them around the area. They called Rob and we had a great day visiting sites such as the remote church at Llangasty Talyllyn, the bustling locks at Llangynidr and Raglan Castle before lunch. The Lion Inn, Trellech proved, once again, to be a fine example of a country pub. Tintern Abbey and Chepstow Castle more than filled the afternoon as we explored this historically rich area of Wales.
