Blue: Llanymynech Rocks SUSPENDED

26 April 10:00-15:30

Llanymynech Rocks Sunday 26th April 2020
Grade: Blue Number of dogs allowed: None

The walk starts in the village of Llanymynech, south of Oswestry on the A483. We walk first through the village heritage area which has a rare ‘Hoffman’ lime kiln,150’ long by 50’ wide built from local brick in the 1870’s . This was a major centre of the lime industry until the beginning of the 1900s. The walk continues along the Montgomery canal and remains of the Cambrian Railway for a short while and then heads up to the high cliffs of the Llanymynech Rocks where the limestone was quarried and sent down an incline plane to the kiln. We walk to a view point at the end of the cliff with a panoramic view, south across Shropshire and Powys and then join Offa’s Dyke path along the edge of Llanymynech Hill escarpment with the golf course the other side of the path. We carry on to Llynclys Hill, down to Lynclys and then return towards Pant to the canal and back to the car park.
