This book explains to the hillwalker- in easy to understand but accurate terms- how geology has shaped the landscape of South Wales. A selection of 16 guided walks is used to illustrate this in terms of what can be seen on the ground. The hills- valleys and coasts of South Wales are some of Britains most celebrated and iconic landscapes. The coasts of Gower and Pembroke- and the shapely peaks of the Brecon Beacons are especially popular. These varied landscapes reflect a highly diverse geology. From the rolling hills of Mid and West Wales- the spectacular heights of the Brecon Beacons- the rocky outcrops of Fforest Fawr and Mynydd Du- the valleys and moors of the coalfield- to the delightful scenery of the southern and western coasts - each has its own fascinating geological story to tell. This book is for the walker who sets out among these hills and coasts and who wants to learn a bit more about the forces that forged this landscape. The first part is an account of the geological history of South Wales- while the second contains 16 walks where you can see evidence of the geology- along with some of the most outstanding scenery of the region.The author has concentrated on what you can see as you walk around the hills- pointing to conspicuous- easily seen features in rocks and the overall shape of the terrain in accounting for the present day landscape.Also in this Rock Trails series by Paul Gannon are Lakeland- Peak District- Scottish Highlands and Snowdonia....
