Walks Around Llangollen and the Dee Valley

Walks Around Llangollen and the Dee Valley

by: David Berry
Llangollen is an historic North Wales border town set in the stunningly beautiful wooded Dee Valley surrounded by hills and mountains. This is superb walking country and the 20 linked circular walks in this guide explore this diverse landscape including the Horseshoe Pass and the Llantisilio Mountains.

There are walks in little known wooded side valleys, along the River Dee and the Llangollen canal, over open hills and mountains, past old quarries on miner's paths and along impressive limestone escarpments. They visit Iron Age hill forts, medieval sites such as Valle Crucis Abbey and Castell Dinas Bran, as well as Thomas Telford's famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

The routes vary in length from 2 to 8 miles. A key feature is that individual routes, as well as containing shorter walks options, can easily be linked to provide longer day walks if required. The guide includes sketch maps with numbered cross references to the detailed route instructions.
