PRESTATYN RAMBLING CLUB PHOTO'S
NEXT WEEKS WALK
SUNDAY February 26th 2017
Walk 1. Glyndwr's Cave Leader Mike Wells Grade 2 10 miles start 0800hrs.
There was a choice of two walks for Prestatyn Ramblers on Sunday February 19th. David Owens was first away with his group of sixteen walkers who headed into the Southern Clwydian Hills. Commencing at the Clwyd Gate outside Ruthin his nine mile, moderate grade route, took the walkers along the route of the Offas Dyke long distance path. The path followed the contours of Moel Gyw and Moel Llanfair and in quite a short time the walkers reached Garreg Llwyd .This old grey stone is thought to be marker on the former drover's route between Ruthin and Llanarmon and marked the spot at which the walkers left the path to drop down into the Vale of Clwyd. Following the lunch break the group made their way across fields and paths before gaining a steeply rising forest track which led them back to the outward route and a short stretch to the finish were they were surprised to find that they had achieved 2300 feet of ascent during the day.
A less strenuous option was led by Charlotte Hughes who took her group of twelve walkers to Whitford for a six mile, easy grade, route dropping down through the historic Downing estate, home of Thomas Pennant the Eighteen century botanist and traveller, before skirting back for the climb up to the site of the Roman Pharos. Lunch was taken here so that the panoramic views across the Dee Estuary could be enjoyed before the return route to Whitford via the Maen Achwyfan Celtic Cross and through the grounds of Mostyn Estate.
Prestatyn Ramblers meet each Sunday Morning and welcome new members. Club details, together with future programme and photographs of recent events, can be found on our website www.prestatynramblingclub.org.uk
