Hay on Wye Facility

Why work at Hay on Wye?

The town of Hay-on-Wye is located on the Welsh and English borders and has an approximate population of 1500 people. The town lies at the northernmost point of the Brecon Beacons National Park, standing on the southern side of the River Wye. Across the river to the north are the green hills of Radnorshire, to the south and west lies the glorious range of the Black Mountains. To the east is the Golden Valley, part of the cultivated farmlands of Herefordshire. Hay is situated in some of the most varied and beautiful countryside the British Isles has to offer.

In local terms, the town was known as ‘The Hay’, the name deriving from Norman origin, Hay or Haie, meaning a fenced or hedged enclosure. In modern times, Hay is known throughout the world as ‘The Town of Books’, and is widely considered to be the secondhand book capital of the world.

For ten days a year, 85,000 people come from all over the UK, Europe, America and the rest of the world to join a carnival celebration of ideas and stories at the Hay Festival of Literature & the Arts. Writers, politicians, poets, scientists, comedians, philosophers and musicians come together on the greenfield site to talk, eat, think, drink and be merry!
