Today, benefiting from favourable weather conditions, we embarked on a four mile hike on a route covering sketchy paths and farm tracks reaching a height of 853 feet.

The Ceiriog Valley is in N.E. Wales. Here, the river Ceiriog meanders for 18 miles through oak woods, rocky hillsides and fertile farming land.

Hike started and finished at the village of Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog which is home to an excellent inn called The Hand, where we availed of a post hike meal.

in course of the hike we encountered flocks of sheep (many), cattle, horses, a shooting party (game birds), fungi, a former flour mill, numerous streams and pheasants.

Overall, a rewarding trip offering superb photo opportunities.
