And so to the final leg of my Sandstone Trail walk, from the Bickerton Poacher (between Bulkeley and Bickerton) down to Whitchurch. A distance of roughly 12 miles … though it felt a lot longer!
I’ve read that the Trail has been extended in the recent past so that it ends at a more convenient location with easier access to transport … that location being Whitchurch. If I’m honest I’d say it feels like it’s been tacked on, as the scenery is not a patch on what came before and walking 3 miles along the Llangollen canal seems like whoever added the extension became bored and went for the easy option. That being said, it was a wonderful walk and a great experience … I’m very pleased I took the plunge!
