WALKABOUT WREXHAM AND CORONAVIRUS

The Welsh Government has now relaxed its Covid restrictions again so that from Saturday 17th July, there is no longer any limit on the number of people who can meet outdoors.

We therefore invite you to join us on our walks.

But, please read our Guidance on Covid-safe walks before you come along and check in the 'Walks' section of our website to confirm whether each walk has begun again.

IMPORTANT - If you develop Covid symptoms in the 7 days following any of our walks, please let us know immediately so we can inform other walkers and NHS contact tracing.  Please email us on

Those who went on the Whitewell Walk during the festival (or previously with me) may be interested to know that I got inside Wolvesacre Hall today.  As our route followed a footpath on the drive to the Hall, we walked along past it during its rebuilding from the footprint of an earlier version, bottom up.  It is now being lived in, amazingly, by someone I have played tennis against.  The refurbishment is almost complete - there is a bit of scaffolding over a very grand front door and a bit of polishing up here and there still to do.
The reason for the invitation to go there was a coffee morning for Cancer Northwest - it is just on the border with England.  If this comes up again, and I think it might, I will try to spread the info more widely so that anyone else interested can come too.  I know John was as intrigued as I am by the place.
The stables are larger than my home, not a surprise as the couple hunt, and there was also a boot room with the inevitable antler chandelier!  My tennis partner and I had come directly from a match and so availed ourselves of the facilities which were also worth visiting!  The coffee wasn't bad either!
I feel I have had a glimpse of how the other half live and if I pass by again I shall recall my visit with pleasure.  Roz

Update on the Industrial Estate Walk
Last Tuesday, Nick and I canoed from Bangor on Dee to Holt, going under the pony and trap bridge from Pickhill Hall to Worthenbury and passing just after that point the culvert which brings the river Clywedog out into the Dee at their confluence.
On the Industrial Estate walk, we passed the footpath turning that would take us down to that point on foot.  I thought I might reccy round there with a view to doing a walk there in the future.  Then those of us who did Rivers' Meet (Ceiriog and Dee, to the rear of Chirk) can do the double and see where the Clywedog really does end it's trail.
Nick and I wondered why we were making such slow progress when we reached Holt.  A fisherman told us that the Dee is tidal that far and, of course, the tide was coming in.  I'll stick to walking in future!  Roz
