'Hairpin bends either side take the little road down into the deep wooded valley where the River Cegidog is crossed by this attractive ford. It is about 15ft across, with a concrete bottom and about 3in of water. Footbridge and ample Ford signs.'

If you can catch this one in flow, this is a nice concrete bottomed ford with a generous depth, worth a visit if you are in the area during the winter months, but watch for the steep descent! Nearby Loggerheads country park offers spectacular walks across the limestone outcrop, toilets, refreshments and a pub.







Northop
SJ243683 (1*) Suitable for All

'It is on the old road from Northop to Mold which predates the building of the first turnpike in the late 1700's. Most of the route of that road has disappeared (it goes through footballer Michael Owen's garden - green circle - as he lives just over the road when he's at home in the UK!) It cross the Northop Brook.

The road that runs east to west just south of the ford (bypassing Northop) is the old A55 before the present dual carriageway bypass to the north of the village was opened in the early 1990's. The ford is about 6 inches deep and is a concrete trough with very steep sides - cars with long overhang might ground (note the signs of grounding in the close-up of the ford) - hence the 'Not suitable for vehicles' signs (Image 1). It barely shows up on the 50,000 map because it is in the village. But it is on a public road and is fully signposted both sides bilingually!'
