The next time you’re in the Chirk area, there’s a bit of a hidden gem you should visit that you probably don’t know about…
Brynkinalt Country Park is a large open space on the outskirts of Chirk with magnificent views over Chirk towards the Berwyn hills and Shropshire.
If you visit, you’ll be treated to a network of paths guiding you through the landscape and an abundance of wildflowers and wildlife (including some very pretty blue butterflies this time of year).
The park also contains mining artefacts – a coal wagon and cutting disc to celebrate the park’s industrial heritage.
It’s a nice, quirky place to visit, so go and have a look for yourself…there’s a car parking area off Middleton Terrace at the lower entrance to the park, and a smaller area at the top of Chirk Green Road.
Here’s a quick video to give you a taster of what your visit might look like…APPLY FOR A PUPIL DEVELOPMENT GRANT
