The Welsh Marches from the West

The Welsh Marches from the West

A travel book along the Welsh Borders. Over the centuries, many have yearned for an eastern coastline to Wales, presuming it would make guarding the culture of Wales and controlling its fate much easier. What we have is Offa's Dyke, long river estuaries and the Marches - the borderlands between Wales and England. The author roamed the Marches, searching for stories and delving deep into its history. He was amazed at the unique character of each distinct area and market town he visited. History lessons teach that the ruins left by the Romans, Normans and later occupants of England along the border were built as strongholds from which to attack Wales. But the impression remains that Wales has had an influence in the other direction too - on the towns, economy and character of the Marches. This has helped create a country between countries, which to this day reveals its treasures to those willing to explore 'those blue remembered hills'.
