Saint Winifred's Well

Stage 13: Ellesmere to Llanymynech

This section is mostly canal towpath. The canal is still being restored, bringing new life to the heritage waterway which carried limestone from the quarry at Llanymynech.

At Maesbury Marsh the Canal and River Trust will be replacing a culvert from 7th. to 23rd. November 2022. A diversion will be in place and clearly shown on the path. Click here to see the diversion route.

The path to St. Winifred's Well (shown above) is at SJ321249.

It is possible to divert and visit Oswestry by using Wat's Dyke Path from Measbury Marsh.

This stage also provides the nearest point to Offa's Dyke Path as both routes pass through Llanymynech. There is an interesting Heritage Area here with a trail through the local industrial history and the well preserved Hoffman Lime Kiln.

You are strongly advised to take an OS map and/or a GPS to walk the route. Please note the digital OS maps will show the new Main Route from January 2019.
