For the first time the stories behind Wales' landscapes are being brought to life by the Royal Geographical Society.
It is all part of its Discovering Britain project, a series of audio guides for walks across the UK which explore how nature, people and events have all shaped the places we live.
Charlotte Dubenskij met Jennifer Lewis, who returned home from Australia to retrace the steps of her grandmother for one of the walks.
