Mines, Moorland and Mountain

26 km / 16 miles

Wrexham
The walk starts from Nant Mill, an old water mill, and goes up the Clywedog Valley and onto the heather moorland above. There is then a choice of three route lengths, each with good viewpoints. The full route, that includes 800m of ascent, goes around Esclusham Mountain and passes old lead mines and limestone quarries, a 'long house' and a stone cross that marks the scene of a WW2 plane crash.

Walk directions, points of interest and a map are available from the website below.
