A planned day off from the 'OFF'as Dyke trail. I started from the Abbey grange hotel and climbed up Castell Dinas bran, Dropped back into Llangollen and then took road and path on the South side of the vale , walking over the Dee at Berwyn. I then explored the Horseshoe falls and Llantysilio church before backtracking to the Chainbridge hotel, as somewhere on this stretch I had dropped my ordnance survey map! I never found it. Light was fading but i noticed the National trust signs and just waded up the slopes of Velvet Hill aka Coed Hryddyn. At the top I walked the ridge all the way to the end and dropped down onto the road that profiles the hill and from here i made it to the Abbey Grange hotel's grounds. I have now (Oct 2013) made it back to Llangollen to continue with the Offas dyke and I have walked both the Dee valley and North Berwym way and this little hill really stands out!Dazingdale28/03/2013
