The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Jill Hughes: October 2019
Meet, 9.00 am behind Alison's to share car to Glyn Ceiriog
10.00 am Glyn Ceirog Centre.
Route. From the Broxton roundabout take the A534 towards Wrexham. Go round the by-pass then take the A483 south. At the A5 roundabout turn right towards Llangollen then left at the next roundabout into Chirk. Turn right at the war memorial, left at the mini-roundabout and right at the next mini roundabout, and follow the B4500 to Glyn Ceirog. Park at the Ceirog Centre which is set back on the right about 200 yards before the small roundabout- look for the green sign. This sign is hard to see till the last moment, but if you miss it, carry on to the next little roundabout and come back again to it.
About 30 miles. No charge for parking but a small donation ( say £2 per car) would be appreciated. If the Centre is open, we can use their toilets.
Walk. A fairly short 'long' walk from the attractive Ceirog valley. After ascending a steep road out of the village we continue gradually uphill through the woodland, past old quarrel workings and across farmland. We now have an easy stroll along a very quiet country lane/track, with views over the valley, before we begging to descend across fields back towards the village. Only about 5 1/2 miles, but hilly in places, so it may feel further !
Food, Take drinks/snacks for a coffee break. For lunch afterwards, I suggest going back to Chirk to the Castle Bistro Tea Room. Use the free car park behind the High Street,
Please let me know if you can come, where you will meet, and by Tuesday evening if you plan to visit the Bistro.

MAKE SURE TATTENHALL IS SAFEWe like to think that a quiet, respectable village like Tattenhall is safe from predatory drug pushing criminals. However nearby Cheshire towns have been subjected to the horrific activities of pushers of heroin and crack cocaine. The effects of these addictive, life -threatening substances are devastating and the pushers are attempting to recruit young people and...
