Description
A group of us came together in October 2008 as a result of the result consultation meetings that were held in Llansilin, Penybontfawr and Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant. Menter Iaith Maldwyn (Language initative for Montgomeryshire) were responsible for these meetings as a starting point for the Tanat Valley Language Heritage project. We decided to produce a guide book for the valley from Penybont Llanerch Emrys to Llangynog with individual guided walks around the larger villages of Llansilin, Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant, Penybontfawr and Llangynog. Gareth Vaughan Williams was invited to be the editor, and the guided walks were written by:
Llansilin – Carys and Emyr Evans
Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant – Thomas Morris
Penybontfawr – Emrys Griffiths
Llangynog –Lowri Roberts (and a group of the village’s residents)
Jonathan Greatorex was responsible for all the photographs in the guide book.
One of the other ideas from the consultation was a website, as well as placing road signs welcoming people to the valley. These will be up shortly one either end of the valley in Llangynog and Penybont Llanerch Emrys.
Delivery

Thank you for supporting a small business during these challenging times.  Every single order means the world to us!

We dispatch all orders received 3 times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. 

Please note that we close at 3.30pm, so please ensure you place your order by 12 noon.  Otherwise, your order may not be dispatched until the next working day (Monday, Wednesday or Friday).

In the event of an item being out of stock or pre-ordered, we will contact you with expected lead time if the product description does not specify this.

In terms of books, we usually have one (or two) copies in stock and if a customer orders more copies that we have in stock (due to our pre-order facility) we will endeavour to obtain the additional books as soon as possible.  We will keep you fully informed during this process, which may take up to a week.

Please get in touch if your order is urgent, we will try our best to help you.

There will be no prices displayed on the invoice when an order is sent direct to the recipient.

Personalised and bespoke items

INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY

Following changes due to Brexit, we are looking at options to ensure we provide the best, and most cost-efficient, delivery service for all our customers.

In the meantime, we have been given this advice from Royal Mail: 

*Each country has their own duties and taxes, so you are responsible for any incurred fees when you receive your order.*

Orders between 10€ and 150€ customers are likely to be charged Import Tax and a handling fee.

Orders over 150€ customers are likely to be charged Import Tax, handling fee AND a Customs Charge.

Please note that large or heavy items may be subject to higher courier fees not calculated correctly in the shopping basket. If this happens we will search all available courier options to ensure we offer you the cheapest courier price available. We will then contact you to see if you wish to proceed with your order.

I love this quirky little guidebook. One version is in English but it flips over and gives the text in Welsh with different photographs. I hope to use it later this year on a trip to Powys.
