Route improvements from Plymog Layby
As part of the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB’s efforts to manage the increasing number of day visits to some of our better known sites the team are embarking on a series of rights of way improvements as identified in the recently commissioned Recreation Plan. The plan identified opportunities to develop a comfort zone in the central
Clwydian Range area, providing routes that can be self-led and easily followed from sites other than the Moel Famau and Loggerheads Country Parks car parks.
The Bryn Alyn circular will take people from Plymog (situated on A494) on to a circular route taking in the iconic Bryn Alyn limestone pavement. Stiles are being replaced wherever possible with Larch kissing gates or pedestrian gates to improve existing access.
Another much needed improvement was the stream crossing, known locally as Seven Springs. Heidelberg Materials Aggregates at Cefn Mawr Quarry kindly donated the large limestone rocks to create new and improved stepping stone crossing. Not only has this improved the safety of the crossing but also the picturesque value of this area.
