Brecon Town Walk | Priory Groves

Book Tickets Online

About

Priory Groves is a mixed woodland, bordering the Honddu river, with oak, beech, hazel and alder trees. Whatever the time of year there are always some birds to see. While you are near the river, look out for dippers at any time of year, and grey wagtails in summer. In spring and early summer there is a good display of wild flowers.

With the town centre on your left, walk to the far entrance to the car park. From here, down the road, you can see a crossroads controlled by traffic lights. Go down the hill and turn right into the Struet, noted for the facades of its many listed Georgian town houses. Continue along the Struet until you reach a footbridge on the left, not far beyond the junction with the road to Upper Chapel. Cross the bridge and turn right up a slope between stone walls. A path on the left leads to the Cathedral grounds.
