I write this whilst supping a pint of Telford Tipple, a pleasant dark ale, on a world heritage site of which there'll be more about tomorrow...
After dropping Isabel off at nursery, I headed to the station to begin my convoluted journey to Llandegla via Shrewsbury and Wrexham. As it was the middle of the day this time I was able to catch the bus to Llandegla rather than having to fork out for a pricey taxi!
I set off walking from the Offa's Dyke signpost in Llandegla shortly after midday, where it was pleasantly warm and there was barely a cloud in the sky. After crossing a couple of main roads, I headed across a few fields to reach a minor road at Hafod Bilston. Here I left the Offa's Dyke path to start my longest variation in the route so far because I wanted to bag Cyrn-y-Brain.
