Wrexham Walking Festival 2024

by Love Wrexham Magazine

The annual Wrexham Walking Festival has enjoyed another excellent year. With 23 walks on offer over 9 days, more than 550 people joined in, almost equal to the record total of last year. Trained volunteers led all the walks, and they were completely free of charge.

With good weather, walkers had the choice of a range of walks from a leisurely stroll around the streets of Wrexham viewing remains of the city’s past to longer, more strenuous 8-14 mile challenges in the hills above the Dee Valley and the Clwydian Range. Afternoon and evening walks were very popular, with over 30 people on many of them, everyone taking the opportunity to revisit familiar spots or explore new places in the Wrexham area.

There were also opportunities to walk around Brymbo, Coedpoeth and Minera, former industrial areas now beautiful countryside, and to admire the splendid views from Hope Mountain and Offa’s Dyke path. Some people chose to explore the Chirk and Erbistock areas. In contrast, others walked around Rhosllanerchrugog or Erddig Country Park, where they were joined by Lesley Griffiths MS. One group visited the Park in the Past at Hope, and another chose to try Nordic walking under the guidance of Denbighshire Countryside rangers.

Whatever they chose, everyone had a good time, and we now look forward to the Wrexham Walking Festival in 2025.

Walkabout Wrexham organises a programme of regular walks throughout the year, with walks every weekday and two monthly walks. They are all led by trained volunteers and are completely FREE of charge. There is no need to book in advance, either; just turn up and enjoy. Full details of the walks are on walksinwrexham.com.
