H M Stanley Trail

24 km / 15 miles

Denbighshire
The H M Stanley Trail links Denbigh, Tremeirchion and St Asaph, three of the key places in the life of one of Denbigh's famous sons. It commemorates Henry Morton Stanley, soldier, journalist and explorer most famous for his meeting with Dr Livingstone - 'Dr Livingstone I presume...'. The Trail marks the 2004 centenary of Stanley's death in 1904.

Starting from his birthplace near Denbigh Castle the route heads into the Vale of Clwyd to walk alongside the rivers Ystrad and Clwyd. It passes along the western edge of the Clwydian Hills and visits Y Graig before crossing the vale to finish at St Asaph Cathedral.

The Trail is one of seven walks featured in a book, 'Denbighshire people and places : H M Stanley walks', written by David Berry for the H M Stanley Commemoration Project Group. For more on Stanley see the link and the biography by Tim Jeal below. Livingstone has connections with the Clyde Walkway and a Jeal biography is also listed.
