Established in 1957, after Snowdonia and Pembrokeshire Coast, the Brecon Beacons National Park is on the border between Mid Wales and South Wales. Here visitors can enjoy forests, lakes, waterfalls and caves, plus an abundance of natural wildlife; from Welsh mountain ponies of the uplands, to red kites that grace the sky, or horseshoe bats that can be found in the Usk Valley. In the park, there are also over 250 ancient monuments, some prehistoric, Roman and medieval, and thousands of architecturally significant buildings, nearly 2000 of which are listed.
