More Walks on the Clwydian Range

The first book on the Clwydian Range, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, provides circular walks linked to the Offa’s Dyke Path. This second volume explores its many other beautiful parts and less well known paths. In particular, it covers in depth the large area of carboniferous limestone, which forms a significant part of the Range. The exposed limestone escarpments, pavements, and outcrops, provide stunning contrasting scenery to the lush green hills and valleys, and offer delightful walking. The area from Hendre to Llanarmon-yn-ial contained rich seams of lead within the underlying limestone, and was extensively mined between the 17th and 19th centuries. This industrial heritage is a backcloth to many of the walks.

 

The twenty three linked circular walks in this updated third edition of the book feature open hills, impressive limestone countryside, attractive woodland, and the beautiful wooded Alyn Valley with its famous ‘leete path’. They follow old miners paths and explore the Country Parks and Open Access areas. They visit medieval sites, ancient communities, lead-mining villages, nature reserves, and old country inns
