Nant Mill ( Melyn y Nant ) Visitor`s Centre Country Park

Heading out early we stopped of a Chirk Car Boot, this is now picking up for the coming boot sale season. We picked up some wonderful bargains today. Aaron and I also picked up some more ghost and supernatural items for our growing collection. Afterwards we stopped off for a coffee at McDonald's bumping into a friend an extra coffee was called for as we chatted away.

Living in Wales offer`s so much adventure and exploring. Even after living here for over 13 yrs, I still find places were we have not explored. Today we headed to Nant Mill ( Melyn y Nant ) in welsh.
Nant Mill is a converted corn mill, built in the 18th century. It is now a popular visitor centre and country park next to the River Clywedog. The Clywedog Trail, which starts at Minera, passes through the park and on to Kings Mill in Wrexham.

Nant Mill is located nr the village of Coedpoeth. It is a very magical place. The scenery is spectacular offering steep inclines and fairy glens.

We headed off for a walk along the Clywedog Valley Trail. We walked for some time. The path in parts got a bit muddy but with wellies on it caused little problems. At one point we sank quite deep in the mud. It caused quite a giggle.

After a while we headed off the Clwedog trail and joined the Nant Mill History Trail. This was a very pretty trail opening the imagination and your mind. The trail goes up past Offa`s Dyke and back on the lower path to the Mill. It then follows the leete to the bridge, crossing to the meadow and back over the ford.

It was more fun taking Fred across the Brook for a paddle along with cleaning my boots in the water.

We walked for quite some time taking in the fresh air and the views. You could imagine the place full of fairy`s and elf`s it was very beautiful. We both had a great time exploring our newly found surroundings. There was a group of men working around the Mill as we returned. They watched us with interest as we wandered back full of smiles and giggles.
We are really enjoying our lives at present always out and about. We are putting the past to rest and concentrating on the future. When it comes to getting mucky in the mud No Problem. There is nothing that can compare to the countryside we love it as you can see from our photographs.
