Walk through Glamorgan History this summer


This summer, TV history expert; Graham Loveluck-Edwards is running a series of 15 history walks from May to July across Glamorgan. They are all between 4 to 7 miles, so they cater for various abilities. As you would expect, they take in stunning Welsh countryside as well as places of historical interest and the settings of some of Wales’ most wonderful legends and folklore.

Graham said “People seem to get a lot of pleasure from reading my books about Glamorgan history and folklore, or from watching my videos. I wanted to produce something more immersive. Nothing can achieve that more than going to the places where these events happened to hear the stories told.”


Graham will also be supported by other history experts and even some musicians to bring these places and events to life. There will undoubtedly be a lot of fun and laughs along the way. Not least because every walk ends up at a pub for food and refreshments.
