The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Jill Hughes: February 2019
Here are the details of our next walk.
Jill's contact details are on the U3A website CLICK HERE, and all walkers have to be members to attend walks.
This Llangollen History Trail Walk is being led by JILL HUGHES, she writes:
"It is about 6 miles with some steep parts up and down, It wasn't muddy on Wed when we checked the route, there were about 6 stiles and some sheep and young cattle in one field, they totally ignored us.
We start from the carpark above the Horseshoe Falls, going clockwise, have lunch at the canal Warf and complete the circuit along the canal to the Falls next to the carpark. The snowdrops at Llantysilio church 5 mins further on are well worth a visit if you're not in a rush to get back. The church there is open too.
We'll have a couple of refreshment stops along the way, as well as lunch, so bring what you need for these. It is half term in Wales, so the cafe could be busy, but there's a good choice of nice light lunches.
The carpark is free to National Trust members, you just need to display your current membership card on your dashboard. The cost otherwise is pay and display £3, but there are loos there.
We travelled to Llangollen via the A483 Wrexham bypass, leaving at the junction signed for Llangollen, the A539. At Llangollen ignore to left turn into the town, but carry straight on for about 2.5 miles, passing the International Pavilion on your way. Turn left on the road to Llantysilio and follow the brown signs to the Horseshoe Falls car park.
We plan to leave the carpark behind Alison's Cafe by 9.15, and start the walk in Llangollen at 10.15.
Please let me know if you can come, and where you will meet."
