From source to seaside, the Tywi valley is a succession of spectacular landscapes and locations.

Beloved Tywi is a visual celebration of the 67-mile journey downriver from the Cambrian Mountains to the Bay of Carmarthen, stopping to stand and stare at the celebrated sights and hidden glories of the valley in the company of photographer Ken Day.

The journey also allows us to meet a number of local people along the way, each of them keen to tell us more about the valley's history, wildlife, topography and culture in a series of short but informative written contributions.

With a foreword by one of the valley's best know inhabitants, poet Mererid Hopwood, Beloved Tywi is a heartfelt, unpretentious guide to one of Wales's most beautiful river valleys. Welsh Country Magaine Jan-Feb 2007 - 'This beautiful book with stunning images allows the reader not only to enjoy a visual journey nearly seventy miles long but also to meet a number of people along the way all keen to share their knowledge of the valley's history. A book that many people with a love of Wales will enjoy.'
