to re-discover its stunning views and rich heritage.

Meet at Sherry Mill Hill at 9am, to Car share
The walk leaves at 10am from Llangollen Leisure Centre car park

This is a 7 mile, fairly challenging walk with a couple of steep ascents and descents rewarded by some spectacular views. We will then proceed along the Cambrian Way and down to Crucis Abbey for lunch. Refreshments can be purchased and we can enjoy our own sandwiches. We will then walk to the Horseshoe Falls and back along the canal to Llangollen. Please bring suitable clothing, footwear and a packed lunch.

Whitchurch Walkers were formed in 1976 by a group of local people interested in walking and the protection of local footpaths. Whilst the group is not overly large it is well supported and holds one half day Saturday afternoon ramble and one all day Sunday ramble per month throughout the year plus a number of mid week-walks. The Saturday and mid-week walks are normally between 4 and 6 miles and the Sunday walks between 8 to 11 miles.

The Whitchurch Walkers are organised by a committee (listed below) that meets in the Black Bear, High Street, Whitchurch on the last Tuesday of each month except for December and March, which  is reserved for the Annual General Meeting. Every 6 months a new programme is produced and published giving details of the walks planned for the next 6 months.

New members are very welcome to join us. Our current subscriptions, due in March of each year, are:

            Adults                                                                   4.00

            Affiliates (Societies, Councils etc)                        5.00
            Life membership                                                   40.00

From 1st October 2018 Adults will increase to 5 and Life to 50.

New subscriptions taken out between October and February will run for 13 -18 months.

We are always keen to recruit new committee members and/or walk l eaders.  Anybody interested is welcome to attend any of our meetings or contact us through the 'contact us' page of this web site.
