Subtitled "A Walker's Guide to Gwent, Land of History and Legend"

1984 Regional Publications (Bristol) Limited

Decent walking guide (maps would need to supplemented by the relevant OS 1:25000 to be much use) containing loads of interesting stuff about the old county of Gwent. Chris Barber has written a number of interesting books about Welsh sites, landscape and walking.

Includes 45 walks of varying lengths, dividing the county into distinct areas:

- Black Mountains
- Three Peaks of Abergavenny (Sugarloaf, Ysgyryd Fawr, Blorenge)
- The Vale of Usk
- The Coastal Plain (i.e the Gwent Levels)
- Western Valleys
- Cobbler's Plain (Trellech)
- The Wye Valley
- Three Castles
