Crewe And Nantwich Ramblers Visit Berwyn Quarry And Llangollen

On a bright but cold day the C & N Ramblers set off on Sunday November 10th to Llangollen for a walk through the Berwyn Range and the Horseshoe Pass.

Berwyn Quarry

The route then descended down to the Horseshoe Pass where the road was crossed carefully as there were plenty of Sunday drivers out and about.

Following the Eglwyseg River the route continued along the valley passing the remains of Valle Crucis Abbey.

A stop was made for Afternoon Tea at a very conveniently constructed seating area which was very welcome to the walkers.

The walk then continued along the Shropshire Union Canal until reaching Llangollen.

A debriefing was held in The Corn Mill overlooking the River Dee with a few local beverages to end the day.
