Getting There

A circular pub walk from the Pant-yr-Ochain in Gresford, Wrexham. The Pant is a picture-postcard manor house with a long sweeping drive and majestic trees, overlooking a small lake surrounded by hills and hollows. The walking route performs a simple loop, following a quiet lane up to the centre of the village and then joining a path through open fields giving lovely views across the surrounding hills. The walk has just a few gentle climbs and descents. The paths are generally firm but can get muddy in winter and after prolonged rain. Some of the paths are quite narrow and can be a little overgrown so shorts are not recommended (unless you're immune to nettles!). Towards the end of the walk, the route crosses a dual carriageway. At some times of day this road can be very busy so, if you have the legs for it, it will be safer to retrace your steps the way you came. There are also a couple of sections of road walking so take care of traffic at these points. There is one stile (with a dog-sized gap alongside) on route plus a number of very tight kissing gates, so be prepared to breathe in! Livestock have been used to graze sheep in the past, so take care with dogs. Approximate time 1.5 to 2 hours.

Gresford is located just north of Wrexham. The walk starts and finishes at the Pant-yr-Ochain pub, which is on Old Wrexham Road, south of the village centre. The pub has its own large car park alongside. Approximate post code LL12 8TY.
