A collection of trails exploring the history of South East Wales, from prehistoric times to beyond the Industrial Revolution.
Heritage Walks in South East Wales
The trails range from short to strenuous and include town trails and countryside terrain. The 20 walks are diverse in length and landscape, yet they all have one thing in common; the rich history of south east Wales. From the world-class Blaenavon Heritage Site at the uppermost tip of the south Wales coalfields to the sweeping expanse of Cardiff Bay, the trails are centred on the vibrancy of Wales' past, with the aim of bringing back to life some of her most notable events and characters.
Distance: 1 to 12 miles
