WATERFALLS BRECON BEACONS
 

THE WATERFALLS AND RIVERS OF THE SOUTH BRECONS
This 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. I have 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 or noted. Some of the areas have been well looked after by the Forestry Commision 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. I have 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 this book are private land or open access land, so please observe local signs. Take care and be safe, these areas are dangerous places with much to enjoy for the careful walker.
