A local author who has just published a book on the natural gems of mid-Wales will be signing copies of his work at Bwlch Nant-yr-Arian Visitor Centre on Saturday (4 June).
Anthony Griffiths expresses his love of the area where he grew up in his latest photographic book entitled Elenydd – the ancient name for mid-Wales that was first mentioned in the Mabinogion.
The Forestry Commission Wales centre, just nine miles east of Aberystwyth where Anthony lives, is a fitting location for the book signing as it features strongly in Elenydd.
The book features two pages on what the author describes as “an award-winning forest recreation centre with restaurant, gift shop and children’s playgrounds, picnic areas and sites for birdwatching”.
With images looking out over the valley towards Aberystwyth and another taken from the Buwch a’r Llo stones by Pendam lakes, the book also highlights the way-marked walking and cycle trails and mentions the leat which once supplied water to the nearby lead mine.
The book explores 26 areas in mid-Wales, including Glaslyn and Bugeilyn, Pumlumon, Cwmystwyth, Elan Valley Reservoirs, Cors Caron, Strata Florida and Teifi Pools.
Elenydd can be bought in the recently re-opened visitor centre shop, selling a selection of books, children's gifts, maps, local guides and other gifts.
The book signing is just one of many events held at Bwlch Nant-yr-Arian. For more details contact the centre on 01970 890453.
