Come and join us on this medium ability circular walk, which will incorporate part of the Severn Way.

After a slight ascend to take in lovely views, we will make our way to Freestone lock,

 pass by the Penarth Weir, and perhaps spot some beautiful birds on the Pwll Penarth

Nature Reserve, before strolling back to the pub.

  28th April                      St George.s Day Walk

The walk is starting at Llanymynech Visitor Centre car park,

meeting at 9.45am, for a 10.00am start.

It leaves there and climbs to Pant Village then down along a lane to do

a short section of canal towpath as far as Schoolhouse Bridge.

(The site of the latest fund-raising appeal.).

We’ll then turn around and follow the tow-path back to Llanymynech.

The route is 4 miles long and is over varied terrain, some parts are

quite challenging, with tree roots and a number of stiles to climb,

and, a steep gradient uphill.

If it rains, it will be muddy, so walking poles and good footwear

will be required.

The walk will finish at the Bradford Arms. Llanymynech where lunch

can be booked through the organiser Alan Roberts on 07452 956344 .
