Fancy exploring the Welsh countryside and enjoying some fine real ales at the same time this coming weekend? If so this will be very much of interest…
It’s not too far away from the Potteries if you are based in or around Stoke and I’d recommend getting a designated driver to get there if at all possible.
You can get there by rail although it is a little bit of a trek, the nearest station being Buckley according to the rail website, from there it’s a short bus, taxi ride or walk for the more adventurous.
I’m still trying to find out how to get hold of advance tickets if you are not local to the Flintshire area, I will update the blog if and when I do, but if you need more information please email me and I will pass on your questions.
