We’ve been walking around this quarry on and off for a few years now. My husband grew up on its edges and therefore spent many days… and evening of his childhood down there.
We now get to share this place with our daughter.
Maes y Pant used to be an old quarry and has now been developed into a really wonderful area. It is suitable for all ages, and especially enjoyed by fellow dog walkers. It is also known as the Gresford/Marford Quarry.
Ted loves it down here and just goes wild. Sometimes I wonder if he thinks he’s a squirrel as he has a good go at climbing the trees after them!
There are lots of different routes to take and lots of wild life to see.
Here are just a few of the things I pointed out to piglet…
These beetles had such a bright blue shell on them!
Lots of mushrooms…not sure if they’re edible though so we left them where they stood!
Then brightness of this green tree really stood out in the woods.
Overall we had a lovely family walk.
Even Granny Ange joined us!
So if you’re near the area, pop over. It’s definitely worth a visit.
