Waterfalls a feature of Beacons walk

Those who like to go walking in places featuring rare plants or waterfalls can enjoy both in a Brecon Beacons trek next month.

Held on April 17th and guided by national park rangers, the event involves a three-mile walk up the Mellte and Hepste gorges, where unusual and delicate flora exists among a series of falls.

The trek starts out form the Gwaun Hepste car park at 10:00 BST and ends by 14:00 BST, with 150 m of ascent.

Although the walks guided by park rangers are free, a voluntary public donation is suggested at £2 each.

Such a walk may appeal most to those who prefer to explore the valleys instead of the mountaintops, but for people keen to scale the peaks there are over 30 mountains of more than 2,000 ft in height in the national park.

The highest of these is Pen Y Fan at 2,906, while Black Hill is shared with England as its summit marks the border between the two nations.
