Published by the GA in conjunction with the British Geomorphological Research Group.

Prepared by a subject expert, each guide has full colour photographs, high quality original cartography and illustration and, with the support of the Ordnance Survey, OS map extracts.

The Brecon Beacons National Park contains arguably the most spectacular upland scenery in southern Britain. This guide describes the enigmatic landforms that mark the outer limits of small glaciers or perennial snowbeds at the foot of the impressive escarpments in the Fforest Fawr, Mynydd Du and Bannau Brycheiniog (Brecon Beacon) areas. It also discusses some of the evidence for their age and possible origins.

Landforms I had taken for granted for years became fascinating. I shall certainly buy this booklet and it will probably live permanently in my rucksack. Recommended to all of you who have the good fortune to come to these noble mountains - Reviewed in OUGS Journal, July 2002
