Overview

'Dinas Powys (the modern-day standardised spelling - it was previously also spelt 'Dinas Powis') is a large village and a community in the Vale of Glamorgan in South Wales which takes its name from the Dinas Powys hillfort that dates from the Iron Age ... Despite the addition of several housing developments over the past fifty years, the old village centre of Dinas Powys still has a mostly unspoiled and almost rural feel, retaining a large village common and a traditional village centre complete with a post office and a range of small independent shops, public houses, restaurants and community facilities ...'

The burial chambers of Tinkinswood and St. Lythans, both older than Stonehenge, provide early highlights of this appealing walk ...'
