Offas Dyke Day Walk Part 9 - The Castles and Abbeys of Llangollen (38724)

Event Overview

Join us for the last in this series of day walks along the Offa's Dyke Trail. This moderate 7 mile section takes in the beautiful scenery and interesting heritage which surrounds the charming town of Llangollen.

We'll set off from the Heritage Railway Station in Llangollen and climb out of the town towards Castell Dinas Bran, which was briefly the home of medieval Welsh Princes.  The castle sits atop a steep hill but the climb is worth it for the view!  We'll then descend the other side of the hill and pick up the Offa's Dyke Trail as it runs underneath some soaring cliffs, before we cut across farmland to pick up a path which takes us to the ruins of Valle Crucis Abbey, once home to Cistercian Monks.  From there, we'll follow the Llangollen Canal back into the centre of town and most probably a pub/tea room.
