Talgarth’s festival had to be cancelled, so they produced a walking guide

Talgarth is a Walkers are Welcome town at the foot of the Black Mountains in the eastern part of the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority. The name Talgarth means ‘front of the hill’. Talgarth is believed to have been centre of the kingdom of Brycheiniog founded in the mid 5th Century. The kingdom was ruled by Brychan. It is now a friendly riverside market town, with a recently restored corn mill and bakery. It is a lively hub for outdoor activities. The area offers superb walking country, with diverse terrain ranging from the historic townscape in and around Talgarth to the northern escarpment and plateaux of the Black Mountains.  Having been unable to hold their 2020 Talgarth Walking Festival, they have produced a booklet that describes seven circular walks, which are designed to help walkers  discover some of the history, myths, and wildlife of the area and experience a wide range of landscapes.  The guide can be downloaded here.
