The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Jill Hughes: July 2016
This week's U3A short walk (Thursday 14 July) is in the flat lands to the east of Ellesmere, following the line of an old railway track beside parts of the Fenn's Moss Nature Reserve and then walking beside the Llangollen canal.
It's about 4 or 5 miles in all, but bring a drink and snack as I am unsure of anywhere en route that provides refreshments.
We start at a little hamlet called Bettisfield.
Go down the A41 to the Whitchurch by-pass, then take the A525 for Wrexham and then the A495 (the way we go to Ellesmere).
Look out for the left turn to Bettisfield and carry on until you reach the church; park on the verge nearby.
Meeting at 9.45 behind Alison's, or 10.30 at the start.
Marjorie, lease let me know if you can come, and where you will meet us.
It is important that everyone contacts me to let me know if you are coming since bad weather can mean a change of plans — jillhug@ hotmail.co.uk or 01829 770634
Remember, you don't have to be a U3A member to join us for a couple of trial walks but after that, we do ask you to join the group.
