This enjoyable book - the fifth in the series - takes us out walking in the north-east of Wales to find places featured in sixteen stories from Welsh history and myth.

Graham Watkins first tells us a story, then he guides us on a walk around the places mentioned in the story. The walks differ in length and difficulty, and the instructions are clear and helpful. The book is illustrated with maps and photographs.
This time Graham tells of a well, a pool and a lighthouse; devil dogs, angels and fairies; a princess, a bishop, and a mad king. He takes us walking around Holywell, Rhuddlan and St Asaph, to the Goblin Tower, St Cwyfan's Cross, and to an inn with very strange people in it!
The author says: ‘As I completed each walk, I found that I had a different perspective on, and a better insight into, the related legend. The walk and the legend reinforced each other and added to the enjoyment.’
