The Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) is the dramatic upland frontier of North Wales. The AONB covers 390 square kilometres of windswept hilltops, heather moorland, limestone crags and valleys.

Almost touching the coast at Prestatyn Hillside in the north and stretching to the summit of Moel Fferna at 630 metres in the remote Berwyn Mountains. Yet it is a vibrant place with a working mosaic of farming, forestry and sustainable recreation. The area includes the serene Dee Valley with dynamic Llangollen and its unique International Eisteddfod, whilst it stretches east to the masterpiece of Thomas Telford the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct and the tranquillity of the Llangollen Canal.

Being designated an AONB, one of just five in the whole of Wales, protects its stunning natural beauty for future generations. But this is not just a story of place. It’s about people too.

Humans have shaped this remarkable landscape since Iron Age tribes built a chain of hillforts all along the Clwydian Range and Llantysilio Mountains. They are still making their mark today.

Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail, which passes right through the whole AONB from Prestatyn to Chirk, is a great way to connect with our unique Welsh blend of nature, heritage and culture. We’re one of the least discovered yet easiest to explore of Britain’s finest landscapes.
