Enjoy a family stroll with the pooch in tow along this picturesque stretch of the River Dee, just South of Chester and on the North Wales border. Kids will enjoy being able to step foot in and out of both countries as England and Wales are separated by a grade II listed, 14th Century nine-arch sandstone bridge.
There are various walks/trails of various distances. Some points of intertest on the Holt trails will take you past St Chads Church, by the ‘kissing gate’ or past the remains of the castle, once an important fortress during the Civil War. If you decide to follow the Farndon trails, you will walk along the ‘Hungry Hills, observe some fine architecture in the grade II listed buildings along the high street, visit St Chads Church, the war memorial, and the village ‘lock up’.
Additional information: *Free car parks nearby. *The area is accessible for wheelchair and pram users but some areas are grassed which may make some areas a little trickier than others. The recently constructed boardwalk will make a walk by the river more accessible.
