Clwydian Range: Making a mountain out of a few hills

Post categories:

We've yet to exploit [in an environmentally-friendly way] the Clwydian Range as a major draw for walkers and tourists and, spotting an opportunity to get back out on these fabulous hills, we're in the initial stages of creating some content based on the landscape, its history and the people who make their lives on the hillsides and those who come to enjoy them.

With all that in mind, can you help us?

Moel Famau

To get the ball rolling we've started a photo pool on flickr.com and we'd welcome your contributions to show off the hills along the range.

You can also share your ideas and comments [just post a message below] about the things we should feature and let us know about any weblinks.

True, there is an official site but there's a lot more that isn't mentioned.

John has already set up a great site dedicated to one of the most popular peaks, Moel Famau, but what about all the others?

We've previously mentioned some of the Iron Age hillforts and we've been promoting local walks that include the Clwydian Range as it forms part of the Offa's Dyke Path.

Contibutors to our BBC Local site have also been emailing and uploading photos for some time showing local scenes and the range is ever present, from sunset scenes, and various walking events like this one.

So, it's about time we pulled everything together and that's what we hope to start to look at with your help and advice.

I'll keep you posted about things our end and please feel free to get in touch either below or via email or twitter.
