“How softly, how sweetly varied are the colours of these visionary hills!  They lull the spirit through the eye, and in all their swelling variations of green, or their casual rocks, or their channels of torrents, they act upon the mind like some tranquilising music, like that interval of divine worship when the plaintive organ steals into the farthest corners of a church, amid the silence of the priest and the congregation.”

This was John Parker’s description, when he visited the Cambrians in 1836.

Being so remote has left this beautiful landscape of hills, mountain rivers and widely scattered farms relatively undisturbed for centuries, providing a rare example of a surviving, largely intact prehistoric landscape.
