pub walk

A circular pub walk from the Cross Foxes in Erbistock, near Wrexham. The Cross Foxes is a wonderful pub sitting high on the banks overlooking the River Dee. The walking route heads east over pastures and through woodland to reach the nearby village of Overton, before returning along the banks of the beautiful River Dee. A lovely walk with chance to explore the classic farmland of this part of North Wales, plus the picturesque, peaceful, meandering River Dee. The walk follows a mixture of field and woodland paths alongside the River Dee, all of which can get very muddy so good waterproof boots are a must (along with a change of shoes for the pub!). If the River Dee is in flood (after periods of heavy rain) some of the paths can be flooded so do not attempt the walk at these times. There are several climbs and descents throughout and you will need to negotiate several gates plus seven stiles. Beware that many of the fields will likely be holding dairy cattle and they may show some aggression towards a dog. Approximate time 2.5 to 3 hours.
