Autumn is a great time of year for a walk, and the colours in mid-Wales are at their best at the moment. If you’re looking for new areas to explore, a walks booklet has just been launched by the local community of Cilcennin, funded through our Big Lottery-funded ‘Wildlife Where you Live’ (WWYL) project:
Featuring 4 walks around the Aeron and Arth valleys, the booklet describes family-friendly trails and includes notes on the wildlife you might see along the way. The leaflet was devised and designed by Cilcennin WWYL participants led by Ray Williams of Cilcennin Cyntaf (“Cilcennin First”), who worked closely with local artist Philip Huckin. The bilingual leaflet will be available to all local residents free of charge and will shortly be available on both our website, and Cilcennin’s website. One of the main aims of our WWYL project was to encourage everyone to explore their local environment, and we are thrilled that the launch of this leaflet will enable this exploration to continue into the future. Thanks to Ray and everyone else involved for the time and effort they gave to bring this project to fruition.

Images from the walks booklet have been put up for sale by Philip, at an auction to be held in Pennant Village hall on Friday 29th November. All proceeds from the sale will go to the charity Save the Children specifically for their Philippines Typhoon appeal. For more information on the bidding process or to see larger examples of the images, visit the Pennant Community website .

If you live further afield, why not book a short break in our self-catering Eco Lodge and come and discover the “4 walks” for yourself? You can’t beat a stroll through the fallen leaves on a crisp and sunny autumn day, especially when you know there’s a cosy log-burning stove and a hot chocolate at the end of it!
