Out of all the hundreds of walks that have been completed during the Corwen Walking Festival this walk, and the concept of it, is the one we are most proud of. The concept of the LB walk was born over a drink in the Royal Oak pub when the Chair of the Corwen and District Business Association, Tish Aldridge, came up with the idea of doing a walk predominently for local people to get them out walking in their own Countryside but taking them to places that many of them may never have been to before. A stunning idea that grew into what has become one of the most popular walks of the Festival.

This walk busses people to a high point around Corwen and allows the participants to take in the views and then stroll down. We have been to Liberty Hall, Moel Fferna, Llantysilio Mountain and this year we are going to Pen Y Gelli.

For this year we will bus the participants to the high point of Pen Y Gelli above the village of Cynwyd. From here the walkers will descend back into Cynwyd and then stroll back to Corwen via the nature trail on the former Corwen to Cynwyd railway line by the River Dee. Great views and the chance to share this walk with many local Corwen people.

Now open to all walkers you not only get a great walk but we guarantee great company and you even get to walk with the lady who came up with the idea Tish Aldridge.
