Anglesey Walking Holidays – Glyndŵr’s Way
The Glyndŵr’s Way is a 135 mile (209km) 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.
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.
