|Description:||This tranquil and beautiful part of mid-Wales is an ideal location to explore a section of the River Vyrnwy. There is a short accessible section, which finishes at the picnic site a few hundred metres down from the starting point. The rest of the walk is more strenuous with stunning views.
The way marked route runs in parallel with sections of Glyndwr's Way, giving walkers various options including a 16 mile figure-of-eight excursion from Pont Llogel, plus two circular walks from Pont Llogel or Pontrobert. The walk is named after an 18th century hymn writer who took her inspiration from the beautiful local landscapes. The walk is distinguished by its 'open bible' on the way marked signs.
Ann Griffiths (1776 - 1805) was a Calvinistic Methodist hymn writer who lived the majority of her life in Dolanog, near Welshpool. Many people travel to the remote area to visit the places associated with her life and work. Plas Dolanog, a fine period vernacular structure was built by the Watkin Williams Wynne family in 1664. Dolanog village is home to the Ann Griffiths Memorial Chapel, built in 1903, furnished in simple Art Nouveau style.
