Saturday 25th March 2023, we walked an old one from Betws y Coed, starting near Cunninghams, 7.3 miles with 1483 ft of total ascent.  Jackie leading this walk, with Janet doing the driving, and ferrying people about.  It was a lovely day and Linda missed out the hill at the start and Caryl missed out the last bit.  Photos on facebook but a few on here as a taster.
Saturday 18th February we walked from Moelfre to Red Wharf Bay, starting where we finished last week.  Misty going across to Anglesey but by the time we started walking it was all clear and wonderful views.  Jan led the walk, we had cake from Jean , photos from Caryl and Jackie.  19 of us took part on this walk, a few photos here, but more on our Facebook page.
Clwydian Walking Holidays walk today started from the Pilot Boat to Moelfre and the wool shop!!!! A great start 12 of us actually walking and Bob driving the minibus and coming to meet us from the car park. Walking across fields, and paths of the Anglesey Coastal Path on a lovely day looking out over the Ynys Dulas Island with a rescue tower which once stored food and provided shelter for shipwrecked sailors. It was completed in 1824 by Colonel James Hughes. A map drawn up in 1748 shows the island named as Ynys Gadarn, which means strong or mighty island. on the 16th November 1928 the Mary Ann a 138 GRT wooden brigantine built in 1879 was sailing from Runcorn to Falmouth with a cargo of coal when it was stranded on Ynys Dulas. We then passed Traeth Lligwy and onto Moelfre passing the Lifeboat Station and into the village with the lovely wool shop and Ann’s Pantry cafe where we all stopped and had coffee and cake. Just to say a big welcome to Martin on his first walk with us.

From here you head downwards towards the River Nidd and follow that apart from a brief spell into Hampsthwaite.

Skipton Walking Holiday

We have just arrived back from a wonderful 4 days walking around the Dales. Staying in the Rendezvous Hotel, and with the heatwave we had to adjust our planned walks. The day we arrived a few of us walked along the canal into Skipton town, walked around the market, visited the castle and had a drink in one of the many cafes.
Day 1 Grassington to Barden Bridge approx 7 miles instead of to Bolton Abbey which would have been about 9.5 miles.
Day 2 – I improvised and we walked a new flatter walk from Rylstone around the countryside of about 6 miles instead of visiting the Cross and Obelisk which was a lot higher and would have been really difficult with the weather.
Day 3 – this one was from the hotel up to the Dales High Way and into Addingham again just under 6 miles.
An amazing few days and one of the highlights was a dinner cruise on the “Graceful Swan” an electric barge from the hotel down the canal and back. It was so relaxing, peaceful and the meal was just lovely. We were well looked after on the cruise and in the hotel.
Many thanks to all who supported us and came on some great walks. Looking forward to the next one.
