Tuesday 3rd July Llangollen, Pontcysylite Aquaduct and Castell Dinas Bran 11 miles

Depart Moreton Stanley park (off Windmill Drive) at 8.00am and drive to Market Street car park in Llangollen, Map Ref SJ213420, Post Code LL20 8RD. Dependent upon traffic on M5/M6/M54 we should start the walk at 10.00am or just after.

 

The walk is taken from Country Walking magazine and is shown as a 11 mile walk and like the Roaches it is indicated as a 6 hour walk. The introduction to the walk reads "This beautiful walk starts by exploring the quiet hills on the south side of the Vale of Llangollen before descending to cross the Pontcysylite Aquaduct. After a short stretch of Offa's Dyke Path, the route climbs on to rocky, heather clad, open access land offering extensive views, then returns via the romantic ruins of Castell Dinas Bran"

 

With a town base we may possibly(?) find an ice cream or perhaps some liquid refreshment prior to our return journey. The beefeater Euston Way, Telford TF3 4LY, looks a good option for a meal on the way home.
