Vivod & Thatched Cottage

SUNday 29th January 2023 – 9am

We will meet outside Riverbanc cafe on Bridge Street LL20 8PF. Parking is available for free on weekends at Llangollen Health Centre or there is paid parking at Market Street car park.

I will be stopping for a coffee after at Riverbanc and you’re welcome to join me and the rest of the group.

The run is expected to take 60-90 mins, it’s exactly 10km but the climb through Vivod is steep in sections with limited recovery so it will be walked for the most part. It’s a lovely route and get amazing views when going past the thatched cottage on our way back into Llangollen.

Cost: Free – fully insured


Vivod Estate

29.01.23 - Vivod & Thatched Cottage

9am Outside Riverbanc Cafe, Bridge Street LL20 8PF

Starting at Riverbanc, we will go along the canal to the Chainbridge Hotel near Horseshoe Falls. We will go across the Chainbridge, and through the tunnels and see the farewell inscriptions left by our local lads in WW1.

Crossing the A5 we will carry on up through the Vivod estate, crossing the bridge at the bottom of a very long and steep hill names locally as “The Ladder”. We will carry on across and up Foel Hill and come back down into Llangollen passing the thatched cottage that overlooks the town.  Once back in Llangollen we will cross through the town again to Riverbanc and I’ll be grabbing a coffee and cake, of course you’re all welcome to join me.
