Enjoy a waterside walk along the River Clywedog on this pleasant route in Wrexham. The walk runs for just over 5 miles, following a fairly flat, waymarked footpath from King's Mills to the Minera Lead Mines and Country Park.
The walk starts at King's Mills at the south eastern tip of the town. From here you pick up the trail and head west toward Felin Puleston where you skirt the edge of the National Trust's Erddig Hall and Country Park. You can take a detour from the route and head south to explore the 1,200-acre estate surrounding the 18th century Erddig Hall.
The route continues west past Ddol and Bersham before coming to Nant Mill. Here you'll find another country park with a visitor centre named after the historic corn mill located at the site. You'll also enjoy some woodland trails through Plas Power Wood before coming to the Minera Lead Mines and Country Park. The park gives you a view into the interesting industrial past of the Clywedog Valley. On the site there's a museum where you can explore the remains of the lead processing areas from the 18th and 19th centuries. There's also the restored beam engine house, winding engine and boiler houses.
