Waggoners' Walk was introduced as a successor to the long-running The Dales (1948–1969) which had been cancelled due to the illness of the lead actress Jessie Matthews. [2] The programme was created by writers Jill Hyem and Alan Downer; its origins lay in their Saturday Night Theatre production of The Ropewalk, broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in January 1969. [3] This play featured some of the same characters, actors and theme tune of Waggoners' Walk with the story centring on three women who share a flat in Hampstead.

The cottage has spectacular views and is set in a calm and peaceful location but is in easy reach of Newtown and Welshpool with the coast being around an hours car journey away.The only noises likely to be heard are the baaing of the sheep and the mooing of the cows along with birdsong..This is so lovely to listen to. Sunsets and sunrises are beautiful.
