The drovers' roads of Wales

£5.99

Product description

Through the heart of Wales run innumerable centuries-old tracks - many still walkable. These drovers' roads were trodden for hundreds of years from the Middle Ages to the railway era by cattle, sheep and even geese, being driven to the markets of London. The drovers - many of them now Welsh folk legends - avoiding the main roads, walked their flocks through villages, lively market towns, sometimes following Roman and even earlier highways, passing ancient sites and megaliths and through some of the most dramatic landscapes of Wales.

Shirley Toulson has written a guidebook that will help the reader find, follow and appreciate some of the best of these old highways. She re=creates that worl of the drovers, its farms, its markets, its inns, its dangers and its economics. Fay Goodwin provides an arresting vision of the Welsh landscape.

Inscription to previous owner on inside cover. Slight crease on bottom corner of front cover.
