CHIRK CASTLE

For this Sundays walk we are going to Chirk which is a pleasant village now bypassed by the busy A5

THIS IS OUR ANNUAL MINCE PIE WALK AND WE WILL DISTRIBUTE THE MINCE PIES AS YOU LEAVE THE COACH

The town is situated near the River Ceiriog which marks the border between England and Wales and flows into the Dee a short distance away
One of the main attractions of Chirk is the Aqueduct which carries the Llangollen Canal over the River Ceiriog
The canal then continues through the quarter mile long Darkie Tunnel. On previous walks we have walked over the aqueduct and through the tunnel
Parallel to the Chirk Aqueduct is the Railway Viaduct - both structures are popular tourist destinations, together with the near by Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

Standing above the town we have the National Trust Chirk Castle with the famous gates and estate grounds which again are good to walk through
and not too far away is the Llwybr Ceiriog Trail, Llwybr Maelor Way and the Offa’s Dyke Trail, the actual Dyke ran through the grounds of Chirk Castle
For those who are interested the industrial estate just outside the town has a Cadburys Factory (now owned by Mondelez International)
and as you pass you will definitely get the flavour of chocolate!!

YOUR WALK MAY BE GOING THROUGH THE CANAL TUNNELS
SO IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA IF YOU COULD BRING A SMALL TORCH (HEAD TORCH IDEAL)

Toilets available at Froncysylite and at Chirk
