This route follows the Llangollen canal and part of the former Whitchurch to Oswestry railway between the rural market towns of Ellesmere and Whitchurch. At the first canal bridge east of Bettisfield, the route takes a footpath across a field to join a track along the old railway line. This is an easy route to follow with no access difficulties encountered and very little noticeable change in level along the whole route which is almost entirely on canal towpaths or wide tracks along the old railway line....

The route indicates a path to the right but this is not clearly visible, so I continued further down the lane and turned right to rejoin the route into Wales. The route turns immediately right away from the village along Striga Land, and after a short distance, cross a stile to the left across fields. This path crosses fields turning ninety degrees right and crosses directly over New Hall Lane. I followed the route to rejoin the A495 as marked; however, about halfway between New Hall Lane and A495, a path is indicated heading north east which might be a more direct route to the A525, which seemed less trafficked than the A495 and had a footpath. Another fairly long stretch of walking along this busy road until I turned right down a track heading for the Llangollen canal where the path crosses over a bridge and rises up across fields to the dairy processing buildings at Belton Farm Ltd....
