Journalists to be shown delights of Dee Valley

A group of eight journalists will take a steam train trip aboard the Llangollen Railway tomorrow (Tuesday).

The writers, from publications including the Daily Mail, Lancaster Guardian, Dorset Echo, Outdoor Adventure Magazine and Great Outdoors Magazine, have been invited to the area as part of an activity press visit organised by North Wales Tourism and commissioned by Denbighshire County Council.

After arriving in Corwen, local Green Badge Guide Sarah Jones will take the visitors on a walk up to Pen Y Pigyn following one of the many way-marked walks the town has to offer.

From the top they’ll have a grand view of the stunning countryside which surrounds the town and can see its development as a tourism and an outdoor activity hub.

A tour of the highly decorated 17th century Rug Chapel follows, with a chance to soak up some of the rich local history.  

The visit concludes with a trip on a steam train on Llangollen Railway through the stunning Dee Valley.

Along the route way the visitors will have a chance to see the progress that has been made on extending the railway into Corwen and the imminent arrival of a train service to the town this summer.

Malcolm Clements, chairman of Tourism & Leisure Corwen, said: “This is the second such visit to Corwen this year, the town is certainly raising a lot of interest, not only because of the railway but also the many other developments happening here.

“We have seen a lot of new businesses opening up here and with the funding announcements for arts projects and a new cultural and railway exhibition, the mood is very upbeat for the future of our delightful town.”
