* The area around Llangollen is a walker's paradise.
This year’s Llangollen Walking Festival will be held from April 30-May 1 and 2.
Organisers say the event gives the chance to walk with professional guides who will share their knowledge of historical sites, rivers, canal and folk tales within the Clwydian Range and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.Walkers can choose from a number of routes of eight, 12 or 16 miles. One of the walks includes a heritage steam train ride.
There are short walks around the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct World Heritage site with a Blue Badge Guide.There is also a photography walk and talk and two Nordic walking sessions – one for beginners and one advanced.
On certain walks there is free beer, mineral water, energy bars and “dragon poo” cake.Charges vary and places are limited.
