Nice walk that, cheered me up on these dark days. Views from the top outstanding.

Good to see Deganwy Castle still standing since it shut as a hotel. Lots of memories there of evenings out in 1980's and later staying there when I had to visit North Wales for work in the 1990's. Always felt very much at home there but I was never a dart's player.

You have described many of the places that I used as my playground, growing up in Deganwy. When the restrictions are lifted, I will once again stretch my legs on familiar ground

The former Deganwy Castle Hotel has now been converted into apartments like a lot of similar buildings in the area have but I haven't been able  to take a recent photo of it because of the restrictions on travel.   The darts team and their supporters used to have coach trips for the day to Manchester and before they set off the coach would be loaded up with crates of beer but by Chester they had drunk the lot  $drink$

You'll have to do the walk on the Vadre again Brian, we are lucky to be living in such a beautiful area and those views from the top of the Castle are stunning.     If you grew up in Deganwy then I'm sure that you'll recognise some of those faces in the old photo

VISITORS to the outdoors are being urged to say hello to other people, stay on footpaths, and bag and bin their dog’s poo in a new-look Countryside Code.

The updated version of the code, which provides advice for visitors to natural places, is being launched on the 70th anniversary of the booklet’s first publication in 1951.

It is the first refresh of the Countryside Code in more than a decade, although there were some updates last summer in response to issues raised during lockdown, such as an increase in litter and dogs worrying livestock.

Officials said the new version, which comes as more people are using green spaces, aims to help the public be safe, look after the natural environment and protect the livelihoods of people who live in the countryside.

It is being launched as easing lockdown restrictions ahead of the Easter weekend is expected to lead to large numbers of people visiting rural areas.

Changes to the code include advice on creating a welcoming environment for other people by being nice and saying hello, and reminders not to feed livestock, horses or wild animals and to stay on marked footpaths, even if they are muddy, to protect crops and wildlife.
