It's long been known that the upper Wye is home to that huge extent of mountain moor the Plynlimon/Pumlumon massif, which feeds the Wye and other celebrated rivers such as the Severn and the Rheidol. Leading up to the massif is the Wye Valley Walk that takes you through the Wye Valley amid forest and farmsteads that have stood the test of time. Plynlimon/Pumlumon looms in the distance and its interior is obscured from the world of the lower valley where Llangurig and Rhayader go about their business. It's an area that Robert Gibbings knew well for a time as he wrote 'Coming Down The Wye,' a celebration of this remote Welsh enclave and its culture. Captured in this short 3 minute video is this very area evocative in every way.
