Walkers invited to Welsh hillfort
Walkers are invited to the hillfort of Caer Drewyn, Corwen (Denbighshire, Wales), as part of the Festival of British Archaeology. Known locally as Mynydd y Gaer, the fort is unique in the area as its ramparts (walls) are made up of stone, unlike others on neighbouring hills and the Clwydian Range. This hillfort is thought to date to the Iron Age, about 2,500 years ago. Caer Drewyn continued to be used long after the Iron Age had ended - legend is that it was used by Owain Gwynedd (a self proclaimed King of Wales) as a camp whilst Henry II was encamped on the Berwyn Mountains.
The guided walk will include a live voice commentary for, in particular, experienced visually impaired walkers. A minibus will leaves from Loggerheads Country Park at 10am returning at 4pm. Other events in Denbighshire's countryside throughout the Festival of British Archaeology include a guided walk around Moel Famau Country Park on Tuesday, July 27 from 10am. The next Access for All event will be held on August 10, when people will be guided on a second Live Commentary Voice Trail at Moel Famau from 2-3.30pm. Call Colin Antwis of Fieldsman Trails on 01352 756202.
