Walk: Loggerheads Country Park again

Back to Loggerheads for the second time this year.  As I said in that earlier entry, it's somewhere I've visited frequently on walks with my family, and this was such an occasion, with my mother and sister at the one time of year we can rely on getting together.

However, there were two breaks from routine.

There are two main paths in the Country Park. One simply follows the leete path along the bank of the River Alyn, whereas another leads though the woods higher on the valley side, offering views over the area from a large cliff. For some reason, I'd only been that way once before.

Secondly, this was the first time I'd actually entered the 'cave' (lead mine, really) in Devil's Gorge, going in as far as I was able and taking a few photos. Unfortunately, that wasn't far, as the floor was flooded. I'd need to try again in summer, but I think the last time I was in Wales during the drier months was over a decade ago.

Comments

being from liverpool i visited the colomendy camp, on the other side of the road from the visiters centre, quite a few times with school when i was younger.

i always enjoyed every minute of the trips

if i remember correctly iv been to devils gorge about three times and everytime it has been flooded, i think at least one of these times was in the summer, as far as im away the mine is permantly flooded and you cant go much further into it

im hoping to go again next weekend for the first time in about 10 years! your pictures have brought it all back for me!

maybe next time your back around there you could go upto moel findeg and take some pics for me? haha
