Latest Updates

Planned on walking this soon, but, as the previous reviewer noted, it goes through the fenced off demolished remains of a chemical plant in the centre of Cefn Mawr. So this route is not in any way feasible. Will definitely give LlaRho Two a go!...

This route has been impossible to do since 2021, and to date, only plans have been submitted for road works at Newbridge. But why would you want to do this route when RhoChi Two uses the glorious Pontcysyllte Aqueduct?...

Walk this route

A superb walk from the quiet streets and great views of Rhosllannerchrugog to the bustle of Wrexham via Erddig Country Park. Safe and relaxing as it avoids a dangerous road crossing. I found the lanes I had to walk were quiet....

Walk this route

The town is pretty and the walk along the pavement to the towpath of the Llangollen Canal is interesting and direct. The next section, by necessity, follows the pavement of the Llangollen Road and fun becomes functional. There is a little more pavement pounding, on a quieter road before you leave it again....

The wild countryside around Rhos, the slightly lawless feel along Delph road, the views of the viaduct from above, all well worth the trek. Just scuppered by the road closure....

A rainy start for this one from Wrexham through the Erdigg estate and over a couple of very boggy fields. Some interesting signs of industrial history, old mine workings in the distance,. Route was easy to navigate though a busy crossing of A483 was dicey....

Path seems to go through someone's private land - or so he says (Dogs. Signs saying he'll shoot.) Avoiding it means walking on the Delph Road at Acrefair. Major issue though: due to landslide, the bridge - the ONLY bridge across the Dee for miles - is closed. After Newbridge, if the bridge were to re-open, the landscape gets more rural and less frenetic (not on roads much) and I loved the hill above Chirk coming down through fields into Whitehurst....

Leaving Wrexham you notice the ancient trees on the edge of a housing estate which hint at an old driveway into the country estate (National Trust) of Erddig....

Walk this route

To follow the route to Chirk is still possible but involves a lengthy detour from Newbridge - under the railway bridge, along the river footpath, under the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct until the path meets the Offa’s Dyke route at the road bridge in Trevor. Here it’s possible to cross the river and follow the canal towpath/Dyke path all the way to Chirk. It may make more sense to re-route from Rhos to hit the road bridge at Trevor....

Walk this route

In any case, it’s possible to cross the railway line earlier than the route suggests by taking the first footbridge and following the path on the other side through fields to join the B5605....

Usually I catch the Arriva number 5 bus from Johnstown into Llangollen and then walk it backwards. The canal path is multimodal so keep an eye out for bikes and it can get a bit muddy in places. Recommended walk...
