Things to do in Talgarth, Powys
The small but ancient market town of Talgarth sits comfortably beneath the Black Mountains, forming an excellent gateway to the mountains for hill walking or mountain biking.
Close by you will find two nature reserves, Park Wood and Pwll-y-Wrach, which feature in the Brecon Beacons National Park Authority's Wildlife Walks booklet.
The 14th century Pele Tower in the town square is now the Tourist Information Centre. The religious settlement Hywel Harris (the founder of Welsh Methodism) set up in nearby Trefecca still survives as a college and museum.
Close by are the remains of Bronllys Castle, with a 12th century stone keep towering 80 feet above an earlier motte overlooking the River Llynfi. The castle is free to enter all year round.
