Glyndŵr’s Way

The Glyndŵr’s Way is a 135 mile (216 km) horseshoe shaped National Trail starting at Knighton, on the Border of England and Wales. The trail crosses west through the Radnoshire Hills through market towns  and farmland  ending at Welshpool in the heart of Mid Wales.  It is one of our toughest and one of the remotest of all the trails we offer.
Owain Glyndŵr  (c. 1349 or 1359 – c. 1415) was a Welsh ruler and the last native Welshman to hold the title Prince of Wales (Tywysog Cymru). He instigated a fierce and long-running but ultimately unsuccessful revolt against Henry IV of England.  No one knows exactly when or where Owain died.  But he acquired a mythical status as the hero awaiting the call to return and liberate his people.
