Out of Town Walks


From time to time, we will publish details of special or out-of-town walks on this page. 

We will also post notices on our Facebook page to advise that extra walks have been arranged.

Friday 29th June 2018 at 17.15 hours in West Kirby to Hilbre Islands.

Meet at West Kirby Jetty at the junction of Dee Lane and South Parade, CH48 0QA is a nearby postcode. There is pay and display parking and toilets near by.

Be ready to start walking at 5:15pm. As a guide, Google says 47 minutes from Tesco Mold to the meeting point in West Kirby.

Several people are planning to meet at 4:00pm in Tesco Mold car park (bottom end) to arrange car-share travel to West Kirby.

It’s around 2 miles from West kirby to Hilbre going west of Little Eye and east of Middle Eye to reach the main island of Hilbre and its abandoned Lifeboat Station and, of course, its 2 miles back. The sands can be wet, sometimes very wet so be prepared, but we should not be wading.

Feel free to pass on the details to anyone who may be interested

Best regards,

Cemaes Bay Anglesey Friday 11th May 2018.

  • Date - Friday 11th May 2018
  • Time - start walking at 11:00am
Car-share - from TESCO Mold may be possible, leaving at 9:15am (prior arrangements preferred)
Walk Start-point - Traeth Mawr car park, Cemaes Bay, Anglesey, (near the Harbour Hotel at LL67 0NN) SH 373 936 for map readers

Distance - 4.5 miles

Terrain - Rocky shore, some steps, 2 stiles & a few ups & downs.
Facilities - Car park £2, or possibly free street parking, toilets nearby
Travel time from Mold - Google tells me travel time from Tesco Mold is between 1hr 30mins & 1hr 50mins.

This walk has been planned by one of the regular Mold Monday Morning Walkers, Neil Ogilvie and his last Anglesey walk was blessed with wonderful weather, so here’s hoping. Neil says "The walk follows the Anglesey Coastal Path to Dinas Gynfor hillfort passing St Patrick’s Church & the ruins of Porth Llanlleiana china clay works & returns through farmland & lanes.” Neil also provides travel instructions as follow -

Directions: Cross the Britannia bridge & stay on A55 & follow signs for Holyhead. Leave A55 at junction 3 for Valley, at Valley turn right at the traffic lights onto A5025 toward Amlwch for about 11 miles. This route is usually the fastest.
Or cross the Britannia bridge & take junction 8 onto A5025 sign posted Benllech & Amlwch for about 18 miles & turn right into Cemaes.

As with all Walkabout Flintshire walks, this walk is open to anyone so please let me know if you or anyone you know would like to join us. Bring a snack/picnic for part way round.

On the day, if you are on your way and are running late give me a call.

Best regards

Nercwys Forest Monday 18th September.

Hello everyone,

This is a reminder of a joint event between Friends of the Clwydian Range and Walkabout Flintshire' (part of Let's Walk Cymru). I will be leading a walk of around 4.5 miles with a few inclines and a few stiles to one of my favourite local places, Bryn Alyn.

We will meet at the northern car park of the Nercwys Forest, ready to walk at  - 2:00pm on Monday, 18th September 2017  - grid reference , SJ 217 593.

One way of getting there is to turn south off the A494, Mold to Ruthin road, at the top of the Gwernymynydd hill onto the Glyndwr Road. Pass the Owain Glyndwr pub, turning left then right, then at the next cross roads keep on to Cae Newydd Road. Pass Cae Newydd Farm, CH7 4AY, then take first right for the car park. It’s about 2..25 miles from the A494 turn off to the car park.

We will cross the northern end of Nercwys Forest to fields and onto Bryn Alyn. After the clints and grykes of our Limestone Pavement we will return via the village of Eryrys and into the southern part of Nercwys Forest.

Feel free to pass the details to anyone who may be interested.

Best regards,

Wednesday 30th August Rhewl Denbighshire.
Starting from The Drovers Arms at Rhewl at 10.30

This is a gentle walk of just under 5 miles and will follow Lady Bagots Drive along the banks of the Cleweddog River towards Bontuchal. 
We will turn right up through Coed Nant and continue into Coed Orllwyn. The first part of the walk is along a surfaced track whilst the second part will be a woodland path with some exposed roots and 3 stiles.

There is one stretch with a climb but this should not prove too much of a problem.

Dogs are welcome providing they bring along a well behaved owner/minder.

Please meet for registration from 10.00 am in the car park of the Drovers Arms in Rhewl. This is on the right hand side of the A525 from Rhuthun to Denbigh. Post code is LL15 2UD.

Please note that food is served at The Drovers from 12.00 (noon) to 3.00pm.
