Brecon Beacons National Park

National Park

Britain’s national parks were established to preserve and enhance their natural beauty and provide recreational opportunities for the public. This followed a campaign to allow the public access to the countryside, which was launched in 1884 and which lasted until 1931, when a government inquiry recommended selection of areas for designation as national parks.  Public pressure for the freedom to roam mounted until, in 1949, an Act of Parliament established a national park authority.

On 17 April 1957 The Brecon Beacons National Park became the tenth National Park to be established in the UK.
