 Powys Walks

The kingdom of Powys was formed after the Romans departed and current Powys is named after it. It is the largest county in Wales. It combined the former Brecknockshire, part of Denbighshire, Montgomeryshire and Radnorshire into one unitary authority following local authority reorganisation in 1974.

It is a largely mountainous rural county with a small population relative to its size.

Part of Offa's Dyke runs through the county.

There are numerous historic sites of castles and hill forts.

Powys is part of the area known as the Welsh Marches, a somewhat vague area of England and Wales along the border. Its area has varied over the centuries. The term stems from "Marcher Lords", who were appointed by the English kings to protect the border.

So far I have only had the opportunity to complete one walk there but hope to do more in the future.
