Sponsored World Heritage Walk 2024 (FREE ADMISSION)

19 May @ 09:30 - 16:00

Step into your local history.

The World Heritage Walk is a distinctive 13 mile* walk through beautiful scenery along the legendary towpaths and footpaths of Llangollen and Oswestry, an area steeped in local heritage.

Walking with fellow Nightingale House supporters, breath-taking scenery will greet you at every twist and turn, including the iconic Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, Chirk Aqueduct, Trevor Basin and the Chirk Tunnel.

As well as raising much-needed funds for your local hospice, this is also a great opportunity to walk through some of the region’s most picturesque countryside, an area awarded the status of World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

There is no registration fee to complete the World Heritage Walk but we encourage you to raise as much sponsorship as you possibly can. Children are welcome with an appropriate adult. However, all participants must be able to walk the full 13 miles. Each person taking part in the walk must register (including children). Dogs are also welcome but must be kept on leads and are the responsibility of the owner.

You will start your journey by meeting the Nightingale House team at the Lion Quays in Oswestry where free parking will be provided. A free shuttle bus kindly provided by Pats Coaches will transport you to the Chainbridge Hotel in Llangollen where your walking adventure will begin.

*Please note: The walk will last approx. 4/5 hours (you can take as long as you wish but the Nightingale House team will leave the Lion Quays at 4pm). The walk will be approximately 13 miles.
