COUNTRY WALKS

Walks: waterfall wanders




by Webmaster, 24th February 2020

Walking beside water is always a joy, and when it turns into a cascade, even better. Here are three routes to fall for

You can normally hear a waterfall before you see it. And as soon as you do, you’re transfixed, as the distant sound gets louder and louder until you’re facing this colossal roar head-on, with more water than you can even contemplate plunging with significant force into the pool, and onto the rocks, below.

Whether you’re in Snowdonia, the Brecon Beacons, or even in smaller ranges such as the Shropshire Hills or the Berwyns, the characteristic steep, deep valleys of the region mean cascades are commonplace, each with their own character.

Some are single drop, where you can actually follow individual beads of descending water; others aren’t very high at all, but are impressive thanks to the force behind them.

In our walks this month we venture to some of the finest falls in the Borders...

ROUTE 1 One walk, four waterfalls in the Brecon Beacons

ROUTE 2 A walk in one of Shropshire’s most popular valleys

ROUTE 3 Powerful falls and an ‘ugly’ house in Snowdonia
