Wales is an amazing country, so much beauty, so much history, so many people to meet and so many interesting things to see and do and all packed into such a small place. Wherever you are, you are never far away from a great walk.......... 

.......... but while we walk we observe, we think and we absorb information from our surroundings and the people around us. Life is complicated and there are so many things we need to understand to be at peace with ourselves. This involves asking questions of ourselves and others and the search for answers...........

.......... my initial concept for Walk Around Wales was to provide an on-line resource for walkers in Wales and for people visiting Wales, I've been 10 years thinking about the processes and systems that would work as an on-line resource and I can see many ways of fulfilling walkers needs, however I'm troubled by what I see, Wales is a country with a bleak future.............. 

I haven't had to look for trouble, it finds me. With this in mind I've changed the direction of the Walk Around Wales website to one of learning, personal learning that is. I would consider myself reasonably successful and I have always found that self education is one of the key factors in achieving personal success. Whilst we are all different, I believe we are all also connected and we all have similarities in one form or another. With this in mind, I invite you to join me on my journey of learning and discover exactly who you are, but more importantly

Discover who you can be.

I hope you enjoy this website, have fun, stay safe and enjoy walking in Wales.

Thank you - diolch yn fawr

WALKING BEHIND SGWD YR EIRA, BRECON BEACONS, WALES IN FLOOD

48 hours of almost constant rain can only mean one thing, the waterfalls are in flood. A 90 minute walk from my front door takes me to what I consider to Wales' best waterfall, Sgwd yr Eira. This video shows this amazing waterfall in heavy flood including walking behind the falls.

https://youtu.be/IXqYRlqN2iA

In this video, we see how the Neath Port-Talbot Council Planning Development Manager Steve Ball has grossly misrepresented the role of Natural Resources Wales in the planning process for the Heol y Glyn development. This is evidence he is presenting as factual to the Planning Committee. We believe that the reason he does this is to cover up Planning Department malpractice which allowed the Cuddy Group to tip on the site unregulated and to provide the Planning Committee with a sense of lawfulness for the development and in particular the illegal tipping habits of the Cuddy Group. The Cuddy Group were tipping at the Heol y Glyn site from 2005 to 2016  while Natural Resources Wales was founded in 2013 and the Cuddy Group's first NRW licence dates from August 2014 by which time the majority of tipped material had been brought onto the site.
