This route takes you to one of the stunning Marcher castles at Chirk. In fact the whole of Welsh history seems to be represented on the Maelor Way. There's Offa's Dyke, and a wealth of industrial heritage including the Llangollen Canal and Thomas Telford's Chirk aqueduct. The footpath also joins on to several other fantastic routes, including the Marches Way, the Sandstone Way, the Shropshire Way and Offa's Dyke Path National Trail. At 24 miles long it could be tackled in a day or two if you want to stay over on route.
