O ardal Llangollen yn y gogledd i Symonds Yat ger Cas-gwent yn y de, ceir ar y ffin rhwng Cymru a Lloegr rai o lwybrau cerdded tawelaf ym Mhrydain, gan ymweld â Chlawdd Offa, cestyll, abatai, pentrefi tawel a threfi bach ac olion y byd diwydiannol a milwrol. Mae'r llyfr hwn yn cynnwys 35 o'r teithiau cerdded y gorau, ac yn awgrymu llwybrau i gerddwyr o bob oed a gallu.

From beyond Llangollen in the north to Symonds Yat near Chepstow in the south, the Welsh/English border offers some of the quietest walking in Britain, featuring Offa's Dyke, castles, abbeys, quiet villages and small towns and the relics of industrial and military activity. This book selects 35 of the best walks, and suggests routes for walkers of all ages and abilities.
This handy and compact guide contains 35 walks which cover areas of interest all along the Welsh border from Moel Famau to Symonds Yat. The routes range from easy walks of about 3 miles to 'invigorating' ones of up to 12 miles and each is graded for difficulty and steepness.

Simon Whaley accompanies each detailed set of directions with a simple, well-labelled sketch-map, colour photographs of relevant scenes and a brief selection of notes on points of interest. He also gives details of the appropriate Explorer OS map and, where possible, some information on public transport to the starting point. Another useful feature is a note at the end of each route suggesting other paths which may be followed in the area and where information on these can be found. Further to this, he includes contact details for tourist information centres and other useful sources such as CADW, National Trust, Traveline Wales and wildlife trusts throughout the area.

The sketch-maps are basic and Simon Whaley makes it clear that they are meant to be used in conjunction with the OS maps but his instructions are very focused and unambiguous (e.g. he is careful to make clear the paths to avoid as well as the one to take). He does not put a lot of comment within the walk directions but will indicate good views and give pointers such as ‘peregrine falcons may be heard’ or ‘Southern Marsh Orchids flower in the adjoining meadow.’

The tone is straightforward and factual and the guide has evidently been written as a result of painstaking research, close personal knowledge of and enthusiasm for the area. It provides a sound and practical introduction to walking in an extremely attractive part of the country.
