Traditions of the Brecon Beacons

In the Brecon Beacons National Park, we’ve always lived and worked in harmony with the land. While the industrial age had a profound effect on our culture, most of our traditions evolved long before that, in the days when this was primarily an agricultural region.

These days, only a tenth of the Park’s working population is directly employed in growing produce and rearing livestock, but many of our old farming traditions still live on.
