Llanferres to Maeshafn Walk Details
A gentle countryside ramble in the Clwydian Range from Llanferres to Maeshafn in former lead mining country. There are a couple of pubs on the way with the Miner’s Arms in Maeshafn and the Druid Inn in Llanferres. It’s a straightforward circular walk with a good mix of woodland walking, countryside and gaining just enough height to enjoy some views across Dyffryn Alun.
Maeshafn was named after the Maes-y-safn lead mine. This was one of the largest in North East Wales and was an important employer until the early 20th century. While the area has recovered from the pollution this industry caused, there are still clear reminders of this legancy in the name of the village pub, Miner’s Arms, and the nearby Miner’s bridge that joined the two villages.
