This walk visits the historic Llanthony Priory in the Vale of Ewyas, Brecon Beacons. The former formerAugustinianpriory dates back to 1100 and is a Grade I listed building. The picturesque ruins are now under the care ofCadwand entrance is free to the public.
The Brecon Beacons Way long distance trail runs past the abbey so this route uses part of the waymarked path to create a circular walk around the abbey. You can start from the car park next to the priory and then follow footpaths east to pick up the long distance trail. Follow the trail south east and the path will join with the Offa's Dyke Path. The National Trail runs just to the east of the priory and is a great way of exploring this area on the English-Welsh border. This route heads west along public footpaths to Maes-y-Beran before turning north west to return to the car park.
To extend your walking in the area head west from the priory into the Black Mountains. Here you can visit the nearby Castell Dinas Bran and climb Waun Fach for great views over the area.
