SUNDAY WALK - LOGGERHEADS, MOLD, NORTH WALES - SUNDAY 1ST MARCH 2020
LEADERS PHIL MELLOR, BRYAN CLYDESDALE, STUART WATKINSON
COACH CREWE - OAK STREET, OPP FARM FOODS 0830, NANTWICH BUS STATION 0845






THE JUBILEE TOWER, MOEL FAMAU

For this Sundays walk we are going to Loggerheads Country Park which is close to the town of Mold and we are hoping for better weather!!
The name Loggerheads derives from a bitter mining dispute in the 18th century between the Grosvenor family,
who owned the mineral rights in the parish of Llanferres, and the Lords of Mold, who owned those in Mold parish
The dispute dragged on for many years before it was eventually decided. The area has been known as Loggerheads ever since
To be at loggerheads with someone is to be in a strong disagreement with them
In 1926, the Crosville Motor Bus Company acquired land at Loggerheads and constructed tea rooms and gardens for visitors who arrived at the park on their buses

Other amenities included a bandstand, boating lake, and refreshment kiosks
Loggerheads was popular in the 1920s and 1930s but declined after the Second World War
In 1974 Clwyd County Council bought the land and the gardens for use as a country park
The park includes a visitor centre, corn mill, cafe, picnic area, nature trails, and walking tours
One of the mill buildings has been turned into an interactive audiovisual display explaining the landscape of the Clwydian Range
and the Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Our walks will include walking along the Leete Path which follows the route of an old mining leat or water course that originally conducted water from the River Alyn
to a water wheel three miles away which powered machinery to drain the local mines
This path gives good views with the feature of the limestone cliffs above and the Devils Gorge
We will also visit the village of Cilcain which welcomes walkers and has a shop, toilets and a very attractive Church

The A & B walkers will take the upper tracks whilst the C walkers will take the return route down the miners track
The main attraction for walkers is to climb Moel Famau making it to the Jubilee Tower which at 554 meters above sea level gives excellent views
on a clear day Snowdon and Liverpool are visible
THURSDAY MORNING WALK - THE BHURTPORE, ASTON - THURSDAY 12TH MARCH 2020
MEET 0930 FOR 1000 START
MEALS MUST BE ORDERED BEFORE START OF WALK
