The Vale of Rheidol has much to offer walkers, steam fanatics and TV spotters alike
The Vale of Rheidol (Cwm Rheidol) is well-known by industrial archaeologists for the historic lead and silver mine workings and levels, but over the course of a century, nature has reclaimed the landscape.
It has been said that a walk resembles the length of a piece of string when it comes to difficulty.
Many regular users of Car Free Walks have mentioned that the difficulty system we introduced in January was slightly tilted towards the very sporty bunch of walkers.After much deliberation, some pints and a flapjack we decided it was time to act.
Each quarter we enter everyone who submits a car-free walk into a prize draw
For the July to September 2017 prize draw, 3 lucky winners will be offered a book of their choice from Cicerone's range of nearly 350 guidebooks to walking, trekking, climbing, mountaineering and cycling.For almost 50 years Cicerone has established a reputation as the very best publisher of guides to exploring the hills, mountains and countryside
