Chirk area

This 8-mile walk follows the canal towpath to start, then through the tunnel to Chirk. Traversing Chirk Castle grounds to pick up Offas Dyke path, later joining The Shropshire and Maelor Ways to return back to the start.
 
Due to daylight restrictions at this time of year, this walk will leave Sherrymill Hill car park at the earlier time of 9.00am, so the walk will commence at 10am from Chirk bank.

People should bring torches for the tunnel transit, and then if time gets tight, we will have illumination.

Shropshire council rights of way have closed all the footpaths off Greenfoot lane from 22/06/23 for public safety reasons whilst work is carried out on the development in the area.

There is an alternative for the 1st path on the right 0233/122/ which goes through the cricket ground to the Hatton way. There are no alternatives given for the
other 5 rights of way, including the path that crosses the by-pass, part of our Belton bracer walk.

The closures will remain in place until July for some paths and December for others.
