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.
