Visitors to Denbighshire’s country hotspots are being urged to plan ahead for the August Bank Holiday.

Denbighshire County Council, alongside the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley AONB is preparing for an increase in visitors this weekend to Horseshoe Falls, Llangollen, Moel Famau and Loggerheads Country Park.

Visitors should check ahead to see if facilities are open and where possible access quieter sites and walks as this will help avoid busy periods and parking issues.

It is also vital that people respect the countryside and act responsibly, this means not littering, parking sensibly and only to ride bikes on routes where cycling is permitted.

The council has introduced a series of measures at Moel Famau and Horseshoe Falls to reduce congestion in the area. Drivers are also asked to park responsibly or risk a fixed penalty fine as parking enforcement officers will patrol during the bank holiday.

In relation to Horseshoe Falls, visitors coming in on a Saturday can park in Llangollen and use the Dee Valley Picturesque Bus service -

Visitors as well are reminded that they can use Llangollen Railway to disembark at Berwyn Station to visit the falls from either Llangollen or Corwen.

If the weather is dry over the weekend people are urged not to have barbecues, camping stoves or campfires on the moorland areas of the AONB because of the significant risk of fire.

Dog owners are also asked to act responsibly and keep their pets on leads when walking through the countryside around livestock especially as lambing season continues.
