2pm an easy accessible walk suitable for wheelchairs and mobility scooters and people with limited agility. This was originally scheduled as a joint event with Flintshire Disability Forum, but they have postponed until next Spring.

We’ll be joined by Tom Plumbly of the Rhydymwyn Valley History Society (RVHS) who will be able to open the Tunnel Doors for us to peer in. (We will not be able to enter as this is restricted and can only be booked through RVHS)
