Llangollen

My wife and I were visiting our son and partner in Chester the town where my wife’s sister also lives and whose husband,Andy is one of my outdoor buddies.

A decision was taken to walk near Llangollen visting Castell Dinas Bran and then onto Creigiau Eglwyseg, the limestone ridge with the return down an “interesting” gulley and back partly along Offas Dyke path underneath the ridge.

Back in Llangollen we celebrated by having a chocolate drink and a visit to a gear shop – just to browse.

The weather was perfect, cold with extensive views with the hills on the opposite side of the Dee Valley covered in frost.
