Spring in the Clwydian Hills

Sunday 11th April, 2010.

A very prompt report, by Ken Fyles, on this ramble:

Eleven people turned up for a rather unusal ramble in the Clwydians - it took no summits but meandered along lonely tracks you would never have thought existed. Weather was perfect for walking and the views across the valleys were magnificent in the spring sunshine. Roger Sager, a native of Ruthin was the guide.

Anne and Alison fell in love with two new born lambs with mother keeping a watchful eye.

The second photo was taken along the Leet path which goes to Loggerheads. This is an old mining trail which helped to drain many of the mines in this area. The photo is on a bridge spanning the entrance to one of the mines about 60ft below. Of interest to the climbers, the steep wall on the left of the photo has bolted routes whilst the right wall has steep slabs which look as though they give nice, not all that easy, climbing.

Lunch was at the pub "We Three Loggerheads".
