Radnor Forest

Details

The nearby village of Bleddfa (meaning 'Place of the Wolf) give a clue to this area's fascinating history. Tradition has it that the marauding wolves of the ancient hunting forest of Radnor were finally cleared by being driven into the valley here and shot - the last wolves in Wales.

Nowadays Radnor Forest is a more tranquil place and ideal for a woodland stroll.

Fishpools Trail (2.7 miles, 4 kilometres)
The Fishpools Trail starts from the car park. This circular woodland trail from Fishpools car park leads to the viewpoint over Bleddfa village and the surrounding countryside. The Turbary loop is an extension to the trail and goes around the heathland.

Directions:

Fishpools car park is off the A488, approximately seven miles west of Knighton.
Follow the A488 for five and a half miles from Knighton to Bleddfa. Continue for just over a mile and Fishpools car park is on your left.

Public Transport:

The nearest train station is Knighton.
