Overview

'Llandovery is increasingly known for its varied walks and in 2013 became the first town in Carmarthenshire to achieve Walkers are Welcome status, demonstrating that the town is working towards making Llandovery an even more welcoming place to eat, drink, stay and relax. Llandovery has been a meeting point for visitors for thousands of years. Initially for the Romans who camped on Llanfair Hill on the edge of today's town, right through to being a welcoming spot for the hardy drovers on their way to market in London. These walks are easily accessible from town. They enable the walker to learn more about the history and myths of the locality while appreciating the wildlife that is in abundance.'

The club now has more than 250 members and some 40 members regularly turn up to each walk ... The Lliw Walking Club was formed in June 2016.
