From my notepad: It's 6am Sunday morning and I'm in the Erddig Country Park. Most people will be sleeping now, and missing what I think is the best part of the day.
I like this quote by J. B. Priestley:
"I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning."
We're heading for Bryn y Cabanau Woods today and the early morning light gives a magical ambience to the landscape. It's not such an obvious path to follow as the Big Wood Walk but just as enjoyable. I'm going to start adding maps and downloadable walk guides to these posts very soon - I like to think I can help other people enjoy the country park as much as we do.
Starting from Sontley Road car park, walk out of the car park and turn right. Follow the road up the hill. Before the end of the brick wall on your left you will see a stile on your left. Just to the right of it there is a gap for the dogs to get through.
