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.

Here are some of our previous walks

West Kirby to Hilbre Islands

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.

So that everyone understands, the rules for crossing are -

Follow the route described above as the tide can leave deep gullies on the shorter straight-line route.

Find 2 high tide times
Start walking 3 hours after the 1st
Get back 3 hours before the next

Cemaes Bay Anglesey

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.

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

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.


Nercwys Forest

 A walk of around 4.5 miles with a few inclines and a few stiles.

Start at the northern car park of the Nercwys Forest,  - 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.

Lady Bagot's Drive, Rhewl Denbighshire.
Starting from The Drovers Arms Rhewl 

This is a gentle walk of just under 5 miles and follows Lady Bagots Drive along the banks of the Cleweddog River towards Bontuchal. 
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.

Start at 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.
