A. The Beacon's Way goes from the Holy Mountain - Skirrid Fawr (Ysqyryd Fawr) in Monmouthshire to Bethlehem in Carmarthanshire. It was first called 'The Holy Walk', by a Brecon Beacon's National Park Society gent by the name of John Sansom, who passed away last year.
I hope this is of some use & keep up the good work.
A. Hello. The walk you mention does exist and it is called the Beacons Way/Ffordd y Bannau. It is 100 miles long from Abergavenny to Bethlehem.
With a few of my friends I have completed the first half and will be doing the second half. It has been an excellent walk so far.

A. There's a Beacon Way in the West Midlands that connects Sandwell Park with Chasewater. It is 27km (17 miles) long and waymarked with named posts. I don't know of a Breacon Way - but you might be thinking of:
The Taff Trail - which connects Brecon on Powys with Cardiff (88km - 55 miles) - or
The Usk Valley walk which connects Brecon, Powys with Caerleon, Newport (80km - 50 miles) or more likely
The Offer's Dyke Path which connects Sedbury Cliffs in Dorset with Prestatyn in Denbighshire (287 km 187 miles)
Do you have any more information?
Hope this helps
