Talgarth: a most beautiful part of Wales

Talgarth is an ancient market town sitting comfortably beneath the Black Mountains. The area has been settled for the last 5,000years and is an ideal centre for exploring the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons whether you are interested in visiting the oldest long cairn in Southern Britain or enjoying the leisure  pursuits of walking, hang gliding or pony trekking among other things. The scenery is stunning and nearby towns include Brecon (6miles) and Hay-on Wye (8miles). Close by is Llangors Lake (4miles) for beauty and sailing. This is the home of Cr Meibion Talgarth who practice each Monday at 7.30pm at Gwernyfed Ruby Club  on Trefecca Road and visitors are always most welcome.

The town hosts a the Black Mountains Festival at August Bank Holiday (www.talgarth festival.org.uk) where the choir perform the closing concert in St. Gwendoline’s Church.
