Walks Through the History of Rural Llangollen
This is a walking book with a difference. So often, walkers pass buildings or sights which, although perhaps attractive in themselves, are meaningless to the outsider. The author has combined his interests in local history and walking to give a glimpse of some of the people who live in Eglwyseg and Llantysilio in years gone by; who they were; what they did; where they lived and worked. Ten walks of varying lengths take the 'reader' through the history of the area, with something for everyone.
