Denbigh has many historical associations, most of them Welsh of course, so it comes as a surprise to find that two well-known figures from English literature are connected with the town. This walk goes along the banks of the Afon Ystrad to places where these two stayed with friends or relations. It gives fine views of the town and of the castle, which it passes at the start of the walk. There would be ample time in a day to look around the many interesting buildings in the town.

For those interested in a longer walk, waymark 27 is very close to the beginning of walk 1749. There is a matter of a few yards between these points. Have walked these together several times but note that walk 1748 must be walked first.

Please be careful if you take a dog on this route during the game season. They are very trigger happy when protecting the stock.
