It’s a pleasure to welcome you to the 11th Annual Prestatyn & Clwydian Range Walking Festival which continues to grow each year with visitors from all over the U.K. and overseas. A firmly established event providing free guided walks for all ages and abilities ranging from all-day treks to easier strolls with some special themes. Fun and adventure for all the family in the great outdoors.
Prestatyn & Meliden is proud of its status as a Walkers are Welcome community which was the first in Wales and now attracting more and more visitors as they experience the joys of walking the coast and hills. In 2013 the town was a Britain in Bloom Gold Medal Winner adding to its’ Wales in Bloom success. In 2014 the town came 3rd overall achieving 5 blooms in the International Communities in Bloom competition.
Conveniently situated at the Northern end of the Clwydian Range & Dee Valley AONB, Prestatyn provides a wonderful base for walking enthusiasts offering good access to the Wales Coast Path, Offa’s Dyke National Trail and Clwydian Way as well as many interesting local way marked routes. Following its success last year, the Romans are set to return to Prestatyn on the Saturday courtesy of Prestatyn Town Council.
This year the host venue on the Friday and Saturday will be the Prestatyn Parish Church Hall which is next door to the hall we have previously used for registration. The Sunday venue for some walks will be TY Pendre, a community building situated at the top of Prestatyn High Street. Some light refreshments will be available at both venues but also available from a wide range of quality outlets on the High Street and in the area.
The festival is now on Facebook and we will be holding a Photography Competition for the first time.
Please book as early as possible as places are limited.
We look forward to welcoming you and trust you will enjoy the walking experience in our wonderful area of natural beauty…
