The Old Colwyn Heritage Walk took place last Friday, on the 7th of October, and is one of a series of walks organised as part of the Cerdded Conwy Walks’ programme of Autumn walks. Cerdded Conwy Walks is a group of volunteer walk leaders who organise three walking weeks a year in the county offering a variety of walks in different locations and varying from easy walks to challenging climbs.
The Old Colwyn Heritage Walk followed the Heritage trail laid out in the booklet developed by the Colwyn Bay Heritage Group, and was led by David Masding. The walk was well attended, and the ages of those on the walk ranged from under 6 to over 80! The walk took in key buildings of Old Colwyn’s history such as The Plough Inn and a folly, and finished at the TAPE Comunity Music and Film building where walkers enjoyed cups of tea and coffee whilst chatting about their memories of Old Colwyn and of course the neighbouring Colwyn Bay.
