A 150 mile adventure into the remote and mysterious landscapes of Wales and the west. There are gentle grassy slopes, ragged hedges on bare hills, watery plains, rolling grassmoors, deep woody valleys, silent forests and tumbling streams - ending at a shingle bank by the Irish Sea.

From Gas Street Basin in central Birmingham the walk follows, quiet, green canals through the Black Country to Stourbridge. Many people will start from here to head for Kinver and cross rural Shropshire via Cleobury Mortimer and the high point of Titterstone Clee to Ludlow. The walk strides on through remote and gentle border country to enter Wales at Knighton. Then comes 25 miles of wilder hills and tiny villages to Rhaeadr. After skirting the Elan Valley reservoirs it crosses miles of desolate moorland to Devil's Bridge. Here you have to option of walking the last 15 miles or taking the narrow, gauge steam railway to the sea.
