Another walking book plucked out from my walking book collection for todays walk,this a local walk for us today as the weather not to good in the morning we decided on a afternoon walk. Todays choice is one of the KITTIWAKE books-Walks along the Llangollen Canal, this compact little book has total of 38 looped canal walks centered on the Llangollen Canal with walks following the full length in intervals including three walks branching onto the Montgomery Canal, walk 1 starting at Horseshoe falls to the far end of the canal at Hursleston junction (walk 35) in Cheshire, which we have completed that walk already and can be found using the search bar on the home page.
Today we completed Walk 6 "THE PANORAMA WALK" which starting at Trevor Basin with free parking and a slight gradient up to the A539 and then a turn left down the old disused Ruabon to Barmouth railway line, then following a well marked path over to the A539, take care crossing this busy road and following the roadside path to a lane and heading to Trevor Hall and into Trevor woods for the accent following the Offas Dyke path.
A totally straight forward yet enjoyable walk, your efforts are rewarded as you reach the Panorama as the impressive Limestone escarpment of Trevor rocks come into view and the Dee Valley below, Castell Dinas Bran visible on its distinctive hill and at one time commanding its power over the locality.
Taking the views and walking the Panorama its time to descend this little world above the Dee Valley and head down to the Llangollen Canal by following a quiet lane till you reach the Oasis of the Sun inn for refreshments.
After enjoying a rest and refreshments its time to cross the busy A539 with great care to the humped canal bridge opposite its time to enjoy leisurely walk along the Llangollen Canal as a few narrow-boats pass by, Pontcysyllte Aqueduct will come into view as you head back the Trevor and complete this delightful walk.
Allow 3 hours plus time to stop and enjoy the view and refreshments, total distance is approx 10k (6 miles).
And finally three new walking books have joined my collection these are-
Walking in Britain which is one of the Lonely Planet books with 492 pages of in-depth walking information and
Wainwrights Walks- Coast to Coast and Unforgettable Walks both by Julia Bradbury, which i have to say i love here writing style which shows her genuine enthusiasm for walking.
