 34 members have booked places.  We will be staying at the George IV Hotel, 22-25 High Street, Criccieth, LL52 0BS; Telephone 01766 522168.  The hotel only has 11 parking spaces and another self-drive walking group will also be staying.  A public car park is close by; overnight parking costs £4.  The daytime charge is not known.

Friday`s walk will be a 5.5 mile circuit by Llyn Padarn near Llanberis.  It will commence at 11.15 am from the Electric Mountain Visitor Centre car park, Post Code LL55 4UR, O.S. Grid ref. SH 580601.  Google estimates a distance of 85 miles and a drive time of 1 hour 40 minutes from Northwich.  If you plan to walk please let Andy know by 7 pm on 23rd March (Tel. 01606 737893).

One possibility for Saturday or Sunday is a walk from the station at the mid-point of the Ffestiniog railway.  The full walk is 8 miles but members wishing to reduce this to 4 miles could catch the train to the next station at a cost of £13 and join the rest of the group for the 4 miles return walk.  Please let Andy know asap if the option of train plus short walk is of interest to you
(Tel. 01606 737893 or email 16wyattp@gmail.com ).
If there is little or no interest a different walk will be arranged.
