|Meet at Sherrymill Hill car park, unless otherwise stated
|Overton and the River Dee
Meet 10am at Sherry Mill Hill or 10.30am at Overton-on-Dee village car park for our 7 mile walk.
From the car park, where toilets are available, we will walk through the adjacent churchyard whose ancient yews are listed amongst the Seven Wonders of Wales.
Leaving the village, we will descend to the Dee flood plain using the Maelor Way to the river. Picking up the Wat's Dyke Way, we will follow the river through fields and woods towards Overton Bridge. We will pass Erbistock Mill and Weir. Then, after crossing the main road, we will head north past Asney Park Farm the home of Woodlands Icecream. We will then rejoin the river to Argoed where there is short but steep ascent with steps to take us off the flood plain.
We will then head back to Overton-on-Dee. After walk refreshments at The White Horse in Overton (if it has reopened) or The Hanmer Arms if not.
There is only one unavoidable style and even that is dog-friendly.
|Brown Moss and Back
This 5-6 mile walk to and around Brown Moss gives a chance to explore this Site of Special Scientific Interest. If open, we will stop at the Chef in the Woods for a brew.
You are welcome to bring your own refreshments with you, and dogs on leads are welcome.
|Save Our Driving Centre!
It currently looks like the DVSA have utilised the RAAC problems at the Civic Centre as an excuse not to house the driving centre there.
Local MP Helen Morgan and others are campaigning against this decision.
