Celebrate Denbighshire’s magical moorland

To celebrate the time when the beautiful moorlands of the Clwydian Range AONB and Llantysilio Mountains are at their very best with the heather in full bloom, the Heather and Hillforts Project are asking people to celebrate their magical moorland on Tuesday 25th August.

A two hour guided walk through the heather starts at 9.45am on Moel Famau and walkers will be able to see for themselves the moorland management which takes place on the Clwydian Range.

Visitors will be transported to the start of the walk and will meet at the bus stop at Loggerheads Country Park. If you would like to book a place, as places are limited, please contact Loggerheads Countryside Centre on 01352 810586/810614 or email loggerheads.countrypark@denbighshire.gov.uk.

Further family activities and talks will take place on our uplands from 11am-3pm at Loggerheads Country Park and will be provided by the Countryside Council for Wales, the Clwyd Beekeepers Association, the North Wales Arson Reduction Team, RSPB, North Wales Reptile and Raptor Sanctuary, the Geologist for the Clwydian Range AONB and the Heather and Hillforts Project.

This free event is being organised by the Heather and Hillforts Project. The three year Heather and Hillforts Landscape Partnership Scheme is developing a £2.3 million initiative for upland conservation work and has received a grant of £1.5 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
