The chapels were built to serve the population boosted by the booming mining and quarrying industries of the 19th century. There are a few stiles some gentle slopes and the possibility of farm animals.

Meet at the Crown Inn, Pantymwyn, CH7 5EH, permission has been given to park in their car-park
Be ready to walk at 10:00am, approximate duration 2hrs 30mins.

In addition to seeing other chapels, the walk will visit the renovated Penyfron Chapel where we will be met by Kelvin Redmile who will give us a brief explanation of the renovation process.

Friday 13th October - Coed Llangwyfan.

Hello everyone,
This is a reminder of a walk/talk by Raymond Roberts, the North Wales Geologist for Natural Resources Wales. The title of the event is "Clwydian Range Rocks”.
The details - 
Meet at the Coed Llangwyfan car park on the Llangwyfan to Nannerch road
Ready to walk at 10:00am, Friday 13th October 2017.
The walk will take us up to the summit of Penycloddiau with a couple of short diversions.
The car park is at the highest point of the road between Llangwyfan and Nannerch, SJ 139 668. I can’t find a car-park post code for sat-nav users but if travelling from the Vale of Clwyd, LL16 4NA is on the road and if travelling from the Flintshire side, CH7 5RP is on the road. In both cases keep going to the highest point. The car park is on the north of the col between Moel Arthur and Penycloddiau.
Raymond says "The plan is to walk from the car park by the road at Penycloddiau and walk up to the top of Penycloddiau with a detour to look at the quarries at the southern end. A couple of miles round trip I would have thought."
If you or anyone you know would like to join us then please just let me know.
Best regards,
Nev.

Halkyn Walkers say "Goodbye" to their good friends at The Blue Bell.


Steve,  Ness and Tom have decided to call it a day at their pub in Halkyn and are taking a well deserved holiday in Scotland before retiring from the licencing trade.
The pub has been host to Walkabout for many years being the pub of choice for their  after-walk social. They have also allowed the pub car park to be used as the regular start-off point.

Good Luck, Steve, Tom and  Ness,  we will miss you!
