The Maelor Way is a 24 mile/38 kilometre waymarked cross-country trail using public footpaths, lanes and a canal towpath. At the eastern end it links with four waymarked routes at Grindley Brook, near Whitchurch. These are the Sandstone Trail, the South Cheshire Way, the Marches Way, the Sandstone Trail, and the Shropshire Way. The western end meets Offa's Dyke Path at Bronygarth, near Chirk. Near both ends, the Way also meets the Llangollen Canal. Most of the Maelor Way is easy walking across pleasant meadows and through woodlands. Many parts of the walk follow waterways: Grindley Brook, the Llangollen Canal, and the rivers Dee and Ceirog. The Way also passes through three villages: Overton, with its ancient yew trees, one of the seven wonders of Wales; Penley where the Polish Hospital once boosted the population threefold; and Hanmer, situated on the mere which gave the village and its local aristocracy their name. This guide includes directions for walking both ways, with detailed maps, points of interest and illustrations by the author.
