Clwyd and Powys
This guidebook takes the reader on a tour of the history of Clwyd and Powys visiting 150 well preserved monuments which are accessible to the public. It covers the area roughly equivalent to the old counties of Flint, Denbigh, and part of Merioneth (together forming Clwyd) and Montgomery, Radnor and Brecon (Powys). Part of a series of four regional guides to Wales, this book provides the reader with a tangible link with the past.
