Spending time on the river bank taking in the views and fishing is a great way to spend the day. The river Usk - boasting both salmon and trout - is a fabulous place to fish.

Brecon Beacons appeal

The Brecon Beacons is a special piece of countryside and we need you to help us save this precious place. Could you spare £30 to repair half a metre of footpath – the equivalent of one footstep?
