I have always called it the Empty Quarter of Wales, while others call it the Green Desert. Either way, you’ll have great swathes of it to yourself. I once climbed possibly its most famous mountain on a glorious sunny autumn day and saw just two other souls in eight hours. Vale of Rheidol Railway The Vale of Rheidol Railway near Devils Bridge

Last Tango in Aberystwyth by Mr Malcolm Pryce | Waterstones

O levels and a grant system (instead of Top-up fees) still exist for students. Aberystwyth has a University, as does Lampeter, although the latter seems to specialise in undertaking and religious subjects ('media studies' for example refers to mediums) – the real University of Wales, Lampeter was founded as a theological college. Louie's education involved Latin implying he grew up under a Grammar school system, but he is one of the last to do this. Llunos, who is older than Louie, reads Ulrico in the original Latin. Pryce writes in the style of Raymond Chandler and has been labelled "the king of Welsh noir". [2] His Aberystwyth Noir novels are incongruously set on the rainswept streets of an alternate universe version of the Welsh seaside resort and university town of Aberystwyth. The hero of these novels is Louie Knight, the best private detective in Aberystwyth (also the only private detective in Aberystwyth), who battles crime organised by the local Druids, investigates the strange case of the town's disappearing youths, and gets involved in its burgeoning film industry, which produces What The Butler Saw movies. North Beach Aberystwyth is one of the most popular Cardigan Bay beaches, a wide sloping sand and shingle beach between Constitution Hill and the Pier. It’s the better of the two beaches in Aberystwyth, a great place to spend time at any time of year, but most of all in summer. My second visit to Aberystwyth, after Aberystwyth Mon Amour, and it was even better than the first. Finished the book today and have already begun the next one. At exceptionally low tides, a petrified forest is revealed, the scattered tree stumps believed to be the remnants of the lost kingdom of Cantre’r Gwaelod.South Beach is much the quieter of the two beaches in Aberystwyth. It’s on the south side of Castle Hill and is a wide, pebbly beach with great views along the coast. The row of brightly painted houses and B&Bs adds to the seaside feeling of cheer and brightness. Its message is ‘Cofiwch Dryweryn’ – Remember Tryweryn. This refers to a notorious episode in Welsh history when the Tryweryn valley – near Bala in North Wales – was flooded to make way for a reservoir, Llyn Celyn, for the City of Liverpool. Otherwise it’s a great day trip from Aberystwyth, full of fish and chip charm and great ice cream to cool you down too. Aberaeron Aberaeron’s picturesque harbour British author Malcolm Pryce wrote a series of six novels set in the town, including Last Tango In Aberystwyth and Aberystwyth, Mon Amour. The main protagonist of this series is Louie Knight, the only private detective in town, who spends his time delving into the (imagined!) criminal netherworld of the town. It was one of the last additions from Aber’s Victorian era, and at the top you’re rewarded with amazing views along the Ceredigion coast and towards Snowdonia. On a clear day you can also see the tip of the Llŷn Peninsula and Bardsey Island.

You could take a short cut there via the Cwmystwyth road, but to better appreciate the Elan Valley drive I’d suggest taking the A44 from Aberystwyth to where it meets the A470 at Llangurig, then head south to Rhayader and turn towards the Elan Valley from there.

The views are just as extensive in the Camera Obscura, another Victorian curiosity, which gives a bird’s eye view of a large part of Mid Wales. Aberystwyth Castle Aberystwyth Castle at dusk Louie Knight, Calamity, Sospan, Eeyore and Herod Jenkins appear in Aberystwyth Noir - It Ain't Over till the Bearded Lady Sings, a BBC Radio 4 Afternoon Drama written by Pryce, first broadcast on 15 May 2013, produced and directed by Kate McAll.This author should not be confused with a different author of the same name, [3] who has written the following books: It’s up on Penglais hill next to the University, and there are free exhibitions on art, history, photography and certain literary works. Combines Monty Python absurdity with tenderness for the twisted world of noir... Add a clown, a brain in a box and an endearing gallery of grotesques and stir maliciously. Priceless'
