We all go walking in Peak District every now and then, but how about turning west for a change? The historic county of Denbighshire has a lot to offer – the beautiful Llangollen canal, stunning ruined castles, rolling hills and moorlands and romantic remnants of slate mining industry. It’s all there and all within an easy reach from Manchester!

We will begin our walk in Corwen, a Denbighshire village known for its connections with Owain Glyndµr, the early fifteenth century Welsh prince who led the Welsh in their struggle for independence. From there we will climb up to Caer Drewyn, one of the best preserved Iron Age hillforts in Wales, and then continue over to Carrog where our main ascent starts. We’ll climb Moel Fferna (631m; 2,070 ft), part of the Berwyn range, where the remains of an old slate mine can be seen. After admiring the views we’ll descend following the North Brewyn Way back to Corwen and our cars. We will then drive to the picturesque Corn Mill at Llangollen for a well deserved Sunday roast.

 

Kit list: hat, gloves, warm clothes, waterproof jacket and trousers, walking trousers walking boots as may be slippy tea flask.

  • fill you with energy and confidence
