The Little Book of Welsh Landmarks is available now from all good bookshops.
The Little Book of Welsh Landmarks, the second “little book” from Mark Rees, is available now.
Following on from The Little Book of Welsh Culture (The History Press, 2016), this was by far the most challenging book that I’ve written to date.
From the research to the planning stage, this was a tough one. In fact, it was quite a relief to hold the finished article in my hands and to know that it was all done and dusted – finally!
What’s the book about?
Here’s the publisher’s blurb from the back of the book:
From the snowy peaks of Snowdonia to the glorious Wales Coastal Path, this compelling compendium is a fact-filled journey through Wales’ most iconic landmarks and popular tourist attractions.
Experience the country’s immense history, from the breathtaking World Heritage Sites to the UK’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the countless castles, secluded beaches, mystical rivers and hidden gems which can be found across the land.
This handy book can be dipped into time and time again to reveal something new about the people, the heritage and the secrets of Cymru.
