Loggerheads


Loggerheads Country Park is a beautiful and interesting area of ground with a disappearing river, an elevated leet, and a bridge that makes my head swim.

If that isn't enough to get you to visit the place, perhaps these three films will. The first reports on the National Archaeology Day activities, which include a visit by the Ermine Street Guard. The second is a report on a really good initiative by Flintshire and Denbighshire (I think primarily Denbighshire) to cut down on car use. The Clwydian Ranger buses take you through some of the most beautiful countryside - a Rover ticket costs just £3.00 - so that you can leave your car somewhere, walk for miles and then catch the bus back (or vice versa).

Dormice are elusive creatures: not only are they tiny, but they are also nocturnal, so your chances of spotting one of these mini balls of fur scurrying around late at night are fairly small. Which makes things difficult if you want to survey the local dormouse population!

Aisling and Emily, however, have it all worked out - but if you want to know their secret, you'll have to watch the film. At the end there is an out-of-date invitation for you (and your family) to join them in the "Great Nut Hunt" at Loggerheads Country Park.
