Event description

Description

Enjoy a unique walking experience from Strolls 'n' Stories. Join Jan as she takes you on a 4 to 5 mile walk in one of the wilder parts of the Brecon Beacons. We walk beside a stream with little waterfalls and faery trees to Llyn y fan fach Lake and then up to a ridgeway path which gives us tremendous views of the lake and the Carmarthen Fans. Some call the lake eerie, others feel at home there, but either way there's magic afoot.

Many think that the well-known legend of the Lady of the Lake is myth, but hear her side of the story.

  • How she gave rise to the skilled physicians of Myddfai and their healing herbs.
  • How she lives and breathes today, yet many do not see her.
  • How her son, one of the Physicians, served the King.
  • Why the line of herbalists and doctors was brought to an end.

If you’re lucky you may hear her haunting song brought to you on a gentle breeze or even get a glimpse of her in the dark and mysterious waters.

Don’t miss this Strolls 'n' Stories event. It's wild nature at its best combined with magical stories arising from the landscape. The Lady of the Lake is calling you in ….. Come witness the telling of her truth.
