Llangollen, Canal and Castle Walk


From the town centre the famous bridge over the River Dee is crossed, beyond which a short climb leads to the canal towpath. This brings you out into more open country, where field-paths are followed to the foot of the hill on which Castell Dinas Bran stands. A steep climb brings you to the top and a well-graded path leads down to a field and a lane.  From here a gradually descending green track leads to the fields above the ruins of Valle Crucis Abbey. The canal is joined again near the motor museum and half an hour on the towpath brings you back to the bridge over the Dee.
