Put on your Tweeds / Vintage / Retro attire and join our local TWEED clad Clwydian Range & Dee Valley AONB walking Guides in this
Year of Legends.
We meet 10.00am:
for tea / coffee and the famous locally make Welsh Cakes in the beautiful Llangollen Corn Mill waterside pub / restaurant right on the River Dee.
after the taste buds have been satisfied and photographs taken we stroll the short distance to Llangollen Railway station to catch the 11.00am steam train for a short nostalgic ride to the wonderfully restored Berwyn station.
From here we cross the beautiful Chain Bridge, our Tweed clad guides will lead us on a gentle five mile country walk and share some of the local history, folk tales and legends.
To finish: back in Llangollen at GALES WINE BAR for some lovely fresh Prosecco, canapés and yummy chocolate cake... more photographs taken...
we'll present certificates of achievement and... someone will receive a special prize for being the best dressed on the day...
What could be more perfect?
We'll be the most glamorous walkers on the hills.
BRING SOME SNACK FOR THE WALK.

DRESS CODE and IDEAS:
The term "overdressed" simply does not exist in our book - think Jeeves and Wooster or Downton Abbey but with more gusto.
For the ladies, lovely tweed jackets, trousers and skirts, flowing silk scarves, jolly tweed hats with feathers shiny brooches.
For the Gentlemen, Tweed suits, plus-fours with long coloured socks, colourful waistcoats, fairisle jumpers, old school ties, jaunty tweed flat caps (cheese cutters), deer stalkers, bowler hats, straw skippers are all positively encouraged.
Good quality 'leather' walking boots of course. Not forgetting, wooden walking sticks, shooting sticks, umbrellas and dare we mention... a sturdy macintosh and umbrella may not go a miss.
A tough cotton ruck-sack is also
pip-pip... plus a sneaky hip flask.
