Next Event.

Lisvane Graig Protection Society Bluebell Walk – Sunday, April 28th 2019.

The Graig Protection Society’s Bluebell walk will be held on Sunday, April 28th 2019.

We will meet in the car park of Llwyn Hîr woods at 2:30 pm. This is located on the road from the Maenllwyd Inn to Draethen on the left hand side of the road at Grid Reference ST 206 866. The walk will be about 4 miles in length and will involve two hill climbs but these will be taken at my pace which is ‘SLOW’ these days! It will be suitable for families on well made up paths and having just reconnoitred the walk today, (Sunday, April 21st) I can promise a good show of bluebells.

Obviously, come prepared for the weather conditions on the day, plenty of water if it is hot and rain proofs if the weather is inclement and suitable walking shoes.

Mike Dean.

Previous Event 

The Graig Protection Society held a short walk on Sunday, March 10th which showed the Public Rights of Way (PROW’s) and the unofficial paths of the area N.E. of the reservoirs which is likely to be affected by the proposed housing developments in the area.

New Year Walk 

The Graig Protection Society continued its tradition of organising a New Year Walk to a nearby hostelry for lunch on the first Sunday of the New Year. This year it was held on Sunday January 6th with a walk to the Black Cock Inn on the west side of Caerphilly Mountain. About 25 keen walkers met in the car park of Lisvane Station at 9:45. The weather was dry and thankfully it had been dry for some time so conditions underfoot were excellent for walking. While it was generally cloudy it was not too cold and little wind, in fact ideal conditions for a winter walk!

We walked up through Cefn Onn Park and up onto the ridge by the quarry and then proceeded west to Thornhill Road to meet it just north of the Travellers’ Rest Inn. We then picked up a couple more walkers for the final bit of the walk through the Ridgeway Golf Club and on to the Black Cock Inn for about 12:00 noon having walked just under 4 miles. A roast lunch was served to ‘refuel’ the walkers for the return journey, which was by a different route. This was via Thornhill Road and then across the fields to the path just north of Llanishen Golf Club and then back to the station
