Walks Around Knighton Guidebook

Walks Around Knighton Guidebook

by: Jane Griffiths
The attractive town of Knighton, on the Welsh-English border, is well situated in the beautiful Teme valley between the impressive east Radnorshire and south Shropshire hills. Exploring Knighton itself is a pleasure, making use of quiet street, lanes and paths to find a mixture of excellent views and attractive old style cottages. A network of footpaths, bridleways, green lanes and other un-surfaced tracks found throughout the area are explored during the walks in this guide. Features of interest include several attractive local pools, oak and mixed woodland and wooded dingles, a large prehistoric hillfort and the impressive Holloway Rocks above nearby Stowe. A more scientific feature is the nearby Spaceguard Centre, an observatory for 'near Earth objects' with an intriguing array of telescopes and other astronomical equipment and displays.

The 20 walks in this guide vary in length from 3 to over 10 miles, but the majority are between 4 and 7 miles. Some are relatively gentle strolls and others are a little more challenging, although none are particularly difficult. Some of the walks follow sections of long distance footpaths. Each walk has an introductory description and detailed route finding instructions supported by a sketch map.

The walks are: Around Knighton; Garth Hill; Frydd Wood and Offa's Dyke; Kinsley Wood; Panpwnton and Cwm-Sanahan Hills; Llanwen Hill and Spaceguard Centre; Caleck's Pool and Stowe; Caleck's Pool and Llanshay Dingle; Coed Detton; Caer Caradoc; Ragged Kingdom and Holloway Rocks; To Knucklas; Knucklas Valley; Around Bucknell; Offa's Dyke Path and Jack Mytton Way (2 walks); Knucklas to Knighton; Glyndwr's Way; To Bucknell; Bucknell to Knighton.
