The Maelor Way Details
The Maelor Way is a walking trail in North East Wales that is largely within the county of Wrexham, but following the border with England for a large distance. It starts at Castle Mill near Chirk, where it joins with both Offa’s Dyke National Trail and the Ceiriog Valley Walk local trail. The Maelor Way continues through Chirk and then along the England/Wales border and the various villages on the way. It starts along the Dyffryn Ceiriog Valley and the Afon Ceiriog and then along the Dee as far as Owrtyn (Overton). It intersects another trail at this point, the Wat’s Dyke Way.
The Maelor Way continues through to Penley, Hamner and Hamner Mere and on to Grindley Brook near Whitchurch.
