Wildflower Walk
Being able to identify wild flowers adds greatly to the pleasure of a walk. Their names are often interesting. Daisy was originally Day's Eye; Dandelion is from the French dent de lion. In this walk we identify some forty common and rarer wild flowers. Flowers are present most months but he optimum viewing time is probably in early May before the shyer and smaller flowers are smothered out by rampant growth. This is a leisurely Stroll, with many pauses to look for and identify the flowers. Allow at least two hours.

Heritage Trails
Founded in 1223 and granted its Royal Charter in 1227, Montgomery is a medieval town which grew up at the foot of the cliff topped with the once impregnable Montgomery Castle. Formerly the County Town of Montgomeryshire, the market town is still and unspoilt and historic architectural delight for the visitor, with its medieval street layout, its fine Georgian buildings and beautiful town. Look out for informative wall plaques around the Town erected by the Montgomery Civic Society.

Stunning... enhanced by perfect weather.
We completed the Montgomery Canal and Dolforwyn Castle walk this morning and then walked onwards into Newtown for lunch. Fabulous views and great information available from signage at Dolfowyn castle and the guide itself.  PLEASE DO MORE. Lunch and Afternoon Tea suggestions would also be welcome
Weekend Break
Thank-you so so much to "VMRC" for creating this fantastic series of walks in Montgomeryshire and to Leon who supported my my wife and I in booking a tranquil break in your beautiful countryside. The guides themselves were both simple and comprehensive enough for us to follow without getting lost. The summery information on the maps helped us identify the walks which were appropriate for "old duffers" like ourselves to attempt. Ok, the weather on occasions was not the best, however we were able to access and enjoy the paths at our own leisurely pace.  The walks were a significant factor in choosing where we took our weekend break. We may even be back again. Our only criticism is a lack of information on a nice tearoom to end our days out (there are plenty it may be nice for them to be highlighted). We would have liked to attempt the walks around Berriew, though the guides are charming, they do not seem to be at the same standard as the others, sadly we chose to avoid.
