The small, ancient market town of Talgarth is an excellent gateway to the Black Mountains for hill walking and mountain biking.

Be sure to visit Talgarth Mill, as featured on the BBC's 'Village SOS' programme.  Close by you will find the nature reserves of Park Wood and Pwll-y-Wrach. Looked after by the Woodland Trust and Brecknock Wildlife Trust respectively, they feature in the Wildlife Walks and Walks Around Talgarth booklets.

The religious settlement Hywel Harris (the founder of Welsh Methodism) set up in nearby Trefecca still survives as a college and museum.

More information about the town and surrounding area can be obtained from Talgarth Tourist Information Centre housed in the 14th century Pele Tower in the town square. Or visit Talgarth's website here.
