Published: 02/05/2023

3 Counties Connected is getting Community Rail week off to a flying start by holding a FREE led rail walk starting and finishing from Chirk Station on Monday May 22nd.

Community Rail Week is from May 22nd to May 28th and is an opportunity for Community Rail partnerships across the country to showcase their projects and initiatives.

Events this year are around the theme of ‘Connecting Communities by Rail’, and more events are planned for this week in May. 


Walk at Chirk

We hope that the local community and rail users will join Walk Leader David for a moderate, 3.5-mile circular woodland walk from Chirk station with beautiful views of Chirk Parkland. The walk is mainly on paths, with a couple of sections crossing over fields.

This free led walk is an opportunity for people to enjoy a sociable well-being walk that starts and finishes from Chirk station, with the opportunity to visit a local café following the walk for refreshments.

Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome. The walk has some rough, uneven terrain, inclines, gravel paths, road and fields and anyone joining the walk should have suitable footwear.

Please meet at Chirk Station on Monday 22nd May at 9.15 am for a 9.30 am start, the walk will last approximately 1 hour 45 mins.

Booking is essential by emailing the 3 Counties Connected Rail Officer,
