Moel to Moel

This weekend our chair, in her last event in that role, lead us on a 6 mile walk from Cilcain up to Moel Fammau and along to Moel Arthur. When I say ‘lead’ someone else had done the walk before so told us where to go and she had someone else carry the map for her but it was her idea! And what a glorious day we had for it!

We met at 11 and after an hour waiting for various stragglers to find us set off from the village (starting next to the pub: it was a circular walk (can you see where I’m going with this?)) and through fields of lambs to the first hill. It was lovely so we stopped a few times and decided to go to the top of Moel Fammau for lunch. We rested again there and had our lunches before strolling along the ridge to look across at Moel Arthur. As it was so nice we walked up that hill too and on reaching the village again stopped at the pub.

Hope to see you soon at a future event, we’ll be in Llangollen next weekend and our next weekend away is Derwentwater in May.
