A perfect dry crisp December day for walking today, i still have not got round to blogging my 10k x-country race yet from Betws-y-coed so i will get round to that at some point.
I was glad to get out today as i have been unwell for week so a gently walk today of 10k was ideal, plus i needed to break in a new pair of walking boots which turned out perfetly comftable.
Starting at Llangollan station and heading upto the canal Warf and following the path to Castell Dinas Bran and then following rights of way paths and lanes, onto a delightfull path descending across a steep hillside with fantactic views down onto Velvet hill and Valle Cruis Abbey were we are heading to.
From reaching the ancient abbey and heading onto the old tramway running alongside the A542 a short walk onto reaching a path which take you on wonderfull walk along the lower reaches of Velvet hill and following paths of golden colour from the winter leaves.
On reaching the B5103 a short decent to Llantisilio Green and the Horseshoe falls, then a peacefull walk along the Llangollen Canal back towards Llangollen with the sight of the steam train passing heading to Llangollen station.
finishing at the Corn Mill in the warm with drink.
I have posted a few photos from along the way.
