Romans and countrymen – 24

Sunday 19 May, 2024

Romans and countrymen

This is a glorious round in an area which we’ve not fully explored before. Our minibus will take us to Betws y coed, from where we will walk by the riverside, crossing Miners’ Bridge to then follow the old Roman route of Sarn Helen past the old village of Rhiwddolion and over the hill to Pont y Pant, in the Lledr valley. From here we’ll follow the river downstream to Victorian Gethin’s Bridge, to then take a path up the hillside to Llyn Elsi, the lake/reservoir above Betws y coed, from where we’ll return on the main track to the village. The minibus will return us to Trefriw.

Duration:  All day.  Please bring a packed lunch.

Distance:  8 miles / 13 km

Grade:  Moderate, but with a total of 1,500 ft of ascent

Please be aware that this is a rural area and that all our walks take us out into the countryside where some parts of paths and tracks will be uneven and sometimes wet and slippery underfoot; it isn’t like walking on pavements!

Departure time:  09:30 a.m. from Trefriw Village Hall (LL27 0JH, SH781631)
Refreshments will be available in the Hall both before and after your walk. (See ‘our cafe’.)  Please stay and socialise!

Walk Leaders:  Maria Denney & Marianne Siddorn
