Wrexham Walks

Chirk Ceiriog Valley

A great walk in the Chirk area taking in the breathtaking Ceiriog Valley. Parking and starting at the public car park in Chirk, then walking along the road to near the railway station, the rest of the walk is then on parkland and farmland tracks, river side tracks and small sections of lanes. All well signposted (look out for the white topped posts for first half), then Offa’s Dyke section, Ceiriog Valley section and even a bit of the Shropshire Way are all part of this walk. At 6.3 miles and relatively flat an easy walk with great scenery. The first part of the Walk is in the grounds of Chirk Castle and we are led to believe this is only open for public walking April to October. Highlights include stunning views of Chirk viaduct and adjacent aqueduct that you pass under, as well as Chirk Castle and the River Ceiriog.

Park and start the Walk at the public Car park in the middle of Chirk

Erbistock River Dee

A nice easy walk taking in the River Dee and some nice countryside. Starting at the Boat Inn in Erbistock village, then following the river Dee on well defined paths, before turning off for some countryside across fields and lanes, before returning to the river for the final stretch. Would be boggy in places in wet weather, but today was fine. Plenty of lovely scenery and vistas, as well as wildlife, on a fairly flat walk.
