Introduction to The:-
Brecon Beacons National Park

Welcome to my pages on the 'Brecon Beacons National Park ' dear visitor. The Park is in a unquic postion situated as it is towards the south of the country, for one enters the park as one journeys west through Abergavenny.

With its diverse terrain there is s such a variation of scenic beauty; that there is something to suit the eyes of all ages. I would stress however that If you're walking the mountainous areas of the 'Park', please remember that they can also be dangerous places, so do come prepared. Such is the difficult upland terrain and weather conditions in the 'Beacons' that they have been selected as the proving ground for those wishing to pass the ultimate test to join the British Army's Special Air Service, 'SAS' an elite regiment who have been called into action by many governments around the world, their motto ' WHO DARES WINS'.

So if you come for a walking holiday I say come prepared, extra warm clothing in your rucksack and a set of light waterproofs is a must, as is high energy foods such as chocolate. A mobile phone is a useful option too. But most of all while out on the 'Beacons' themselves, common sense is the top priority. Tell someone where you're going and what time you expect to get there, or what time you expect to return to your starting point. That having been said have both a great time and a safe enjoyable holiday. As for the other areas of the 'Park'; well there is much to do and see.

More details about the "Park' may be obtained from the Welsh Tourist Board or the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority itself @ Brecon (44) 01874 623775.
