introduction to one of the most definitive books on the natural beauty of the
out on one of the most powerful motorbikes on the road, the Pan-European, a journey
from the hustle of modern cities and motorways might seem a strange way to start
a most beautiful journey into the Welsh hills and mountains, and
in particular, to the natural beauty of the South Brecons. But David Wilkey has
probably achieved what few have done before him, and that is to set out to describe
for others this unique
landscape and how to enjoy and experience it at its best.
welcome to Waterfalls in the South Brecons!
The book illustrates many of
the falls contained in an area known as 'Waterfall Country' in South Wales. Waterfalls
are the most dramatic event in the tumbling course of the river and are by nature
often found in deep ravines or gorges. To author, as an artist and photographer,
size isn't everything. What matters is natural beauty; a high single drop isn't
necessarily the most interesting, everything has to be taken into account including
The author has tried to locate and photograph as many
of the falls as possible to show the beauty and diversity of this rugged area.
In most cases, every known waterfall on a particular stretch of river is shown
Some of the areas have been well looked after by the Forestry
Commission with convenient car parking near the most popular spots. This has made
access to the bigger falls a great deal easier whereas, before certain rustic
bridges were built, the average walker would have found it impossible.
author has also included many waterfalls and tributaries off the beaten track
for the more adventurous which are not mentioned in general tourist guides; there
is usually a reason for this - in most cases, they are difficult or even inaccessible
at present. Also, some parts of the areas covered in the book are private land
or open access land.
