The ancient market town of Brecon is set in the heart of one of Britain's most beautiful national parks. It is a place of contrasts and enigmas, and in an A-Z of Brecon, author Mal Morrison takes readers on an exciting journey through the primary and lesser-known streets and thoroughfares. Along the way the author recounts ancient and modern tales, and discovers something of the identity and heritage of Brecon. As the alphabet progresses there are stories of the invaders who settled there, the treasured saints and the beloved poets and musicians. The author will also visit special places and reveal forgotten facts and anecdotes along the fascinating journey. Occasionally, he ventures beyond the town walls to explore neighbouring locations and reawaken mystical events from the past. Discover when the greatest show on earth, which once enthralled Queen Victoria and the great and the good from Europe, came to this county. Buildings, walls and bridges may give a town its character, and this book looks closely at these, but it is people who give it heart, bringing it to life. Brecon has no shortage of fascinating residents both living and departed and within its shadows lurk ghosts and hauntings. All of these and more shall be visited in the tour of this wonderful town.
