The Henry Vaughan Walk

While in Talybont-on-Usk we found a leaflet for the Henry Vaughan Walk, he was a poet who lived in this area with his twin brother. The walk was delightful, through woods, across fields and along rivers and the canal it was lovely. At various points on the walk there were posts with little pieces of his poetry.

This one for example was by the river.

This one at the start of the walk. It was fun looking for the posts with the verses on them and seeing how they related to the particular bit of the walk. We had to hold them up to read them as they dropped into the posts to keep them dry. On the other side was the same verse in welsh.
