Saturday 24th February 2018 Snow Drop Walk in LLangollen.

You may like to know of a Public Walk open to all, organised by Friends of the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley.

The event is a Snowdrop walk led by Hazel Bloomfield on Saturday 24th February 2018 starting at 10:30 from the Llangollen Pavilion car park. It’s a Pay and Display car park and charges are £1.50 for up to 3 hours and £3.50 for the whole day.

This is a circular walk along the canal to Llangollen then returning to Berwyn on the other side of the valley.  Crossing the chain bridge with an optional stop for tea/coffee, the walk will pass Horseshoe Falls then on to see the snowdrops in the churchyard at Llantysilio before finally returning along the canal to the car park . Total distance is about 4.5 mile

If you or anyone you know would like to join the walk then please let me know or if you have any queries, please get in touch.
