Selattyn Hill’s Bronze Age ring cairn, Victorian tower and World War II lookout start this walk through time. In few places along its 80-mile length does the 8th century earth bank and broad ditch of Offa’s Dyke tower so impressively. Only the distant view of the magnificent 14th century Chirk Castle can match it.

Ty Mawr Country Park

Ty Mawr Country Park lies on the banks of the River Dee in the beautiful Vale of Llangollen, part of the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area out Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Ty Mawr has all the fun of the farm in a magnificent setting beneath the arches of the Cefn Viaduct. There are lots of animals you can meet at Ty Mawr such as donkeys, pigs, and goats. You can even feed our free range chickens and ducks or admire Carlos and Pedro the Llamas, who guard our sheep from foxes!

At Ty Mawr we do not use chemicals and pesticides on the land. That is why we have many species of wild plants and animals and in the summer our traditional hay meadows are full of colour. Why not take a gentle stroll down to the river, sit and relax and see if you can spot a salmon jumping!

Picturesquely situated beneath the dramatic Cefn Viaduct on the banks of the River Dee, Ty Mawr provides some of the best scenery around.

Whether it is to admire the view, to see the farm animals or to take a walk, you could bring a picnic and have a great family day out at Ty Mawr Country Park.

Why not take a longer walk along the riverside to the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct - recently designated a world heritage site - along the Cefn Heritage Trail or link up with the Offas Dyke National Trail?
