A walk from Sychdyn to Gwysaney
In association with Clwydian Ramblers, we’ll be heading out of Mold up the hill to the nearby village of Sychdyn and then on to pass through the beautiful Gwysaney Estate. The walk is approximately four and a half miles long with a few stiles, there are climbs and descents throughout and the route follows a mixture of stone tracks, field edges and woodland paths, plus a couple of sections of road walking.
It’s a rewarding walk, not just for the diversity of the countryside and stunning views of the Clwydian Range, but also its fascinating history. Leading the walk will be Brian Bennett, local historian, who grew up in this area and has a wealth of knowledge and interesting stories to share. Amongst these will be details about Gwysaney Hall – a house steeped in history with links to Rhodri Mawr the King of all Wales in the 9th Century and continuous family ownership since 1550 by the Davies-Cooke family. The present Hall was built on the current site in 1603 by Robert Davies.
