Return of the Rhuddlan Walking Festival in 2012?
After a year's break, there is a distinct possibility that the Rhuddlan Walking Festival will return in 2012 as part of a community festival. More news to follow.
Rhuddlan Trails & Tales
Walking tours of Rhuddlan will be launched during the summer of 2012. These will provide an opportunity for both local residents and visitors to enjoy tales of the town's history and personalities in the company of a trained guide from the Wales Official Tourist Guides Association.
Rhuddlan is a small town in North Wales within the beautiful Vale of Clwyd. It has a country feel yet it is only a few miles from the seaside towns of Rhyl and Prestatyn. We aim to show what Rhuddlan has to offer in the way of its history, its environment and, of course, its walking.
Rhuddlan has a long and interesting history. It sits beside the River Clwyd and nestles between two ranges of hills, the eastern one being the Clwydians, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
There are many good walks to be had, for example: -
- By using a variety of long distance paths in the area (North Wales Path, Offa's Dyke and the Clwydian Way),
- Walks taken from local books, websites and leaflets and
- By designing your own walks!
In 2009 Rhuddlan staged its first walking festival. This was a great success and it was repeated in 2010 as a 3-day event from Friday July 9th to Sunday July 11th 2010. A rest was taken in 2011 to explore alternatives with a view to returning in 2012.
This site will continue to be developed further over the coming months and years to reflect the true nature of this unique community.
