The historic village of Llanybri stands proudly astride the Llansteffan peninsula, separating the Rivers Tȃf and Tywi which flow into Carmarthen Bay. Generations of settlers and travelers have left their mark on this farming community, contributing to its rich and colourful heritage.
The location-aware app (universally available for Android and iOS devices) contains offline mapping and three trails to follow. Immerse yourself in personal stories attached to landmarks you pass along the coast, the pilgrim pathways and the farming hinterland. You will also hear how Dylan Thomas relied on the ferryman to visit friends and relatives in the Llansteffan locality, whether the pilgrim’s graves are legend or fact and where iron-age remains have been found.
Dan was amazing to work with, endlessly patient with the delays caused by ourselves, dealing with community led projects is often challenging but he gently led us to our destination. The audio trail app is fantastic, the clips give a real flavour of our heritage, local people are fascinated by it and we hope that in due course visitors will also use the trail to share in our past.

Hazel Bowen, Tourism Support Officer, Powys County Council
The twelve trails, aimed at the over 50s and/or families, were written ” to enlighten our audience with rich and interactive interpretation of the area.” We used location-based stories and poems to bring the children’s trails to life.
Below are extracts from three of the family trails:
Erwood Trail – Stop 6
I like to hunt in rivers. I like to eat small fish.
The baby nymphs of mayflies is another favourite dish
I swim under the water, go fishing with my beak.

Since the 1990s, Coed Y Brenin has become a mecca for mountain bikers from across the country and beyond. But these are not the only ‘cycles’ to be found within the forest.
Join the ‘Birdman’ Iolo Williams – one of Wales’ most renowned nature and wildlife presenters – as he unveils the life cycles and strange habits of some of the Kings Forests more intriguing inhabitants, in the Afon Eden Trail.
If industrial archaeology is your thing then there is plenty here for you too. Take a visit to the Glasdir Copper Mine or search for gold at Tyddyn Gwladus. Do you like tall trees?
