Real Powys (Real Wales)

The old kingdom of Powys covers some of the most remote and thinly populated parts of Britain and this guidebook explores the towns and villages of this dramatic landscape in mid-Wales through the eyes of one of its long-time residents. Observant, passionate, witty, and offbeat, this handbook takes in the waters at the spa towns Builth, Llandrindod and Llanwrtyd, pauses at the court of Owain Glyndwr and the death scene of Llywellyn the Last, and surveys both the ruined Abbey Cwmhir and bustling Newtown. With a broad knowledge of its history and topography, this account is a perfect introduction to contemporary life in Powys.
