U3A walk

Below are the details of this walk, being led by Marjorie, including a picture she took last year.

Trefriw, Llanrhychwen and the river Dee.

A small group of us did this walk last year, it's being repeated for those who had to miss it.
This is a lovely walk of either 6 or 7.5 miles in and above the Conwy valley, from Trefriw. We go uphill past the Fairy Falls and through woodland to visit one of the oldest churches in Wales at Llanrhychwen, then down beside a waterfall and across fields to the river and back to Trefriw, where there's a cafe, loos and shopping opportunities at the working Woollen Mill to round off the day.

Bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink.

Directions: It's about 60 miles, taking an hour and 20 mins, so I suggest meeting behind Alison's at 9.15 for car-sharing, to start walking around 10.45.
Take the A55 to the A470 (signed to Betws-y-Coed) and go S down the Conwy valley past the Bodnant turn, to Tal y Cafn, turn right to cross the river, then left at the T junction.
In the centre of Trefriw, take the left turn opposite the Woollen Mill for free parking along on the right- Sat nav LL27 0NQ

Please let me know if you can come, and where you will meet.
Regards Jill
