I'm planning to do ODP, south to north, mid-July 2010 but need to end in Bodfari. Can anyone tell me if there's a bus or if not, other transportation from there to Chester?

Looks like an opportunity for LL to explain what you will miss by not finishing in Prestatyn!

This one's a bit better, both in the music chosen and in getting away from the town ;

Well thank you for that LL. I have read your other posts about Prestatyn (and by the way we have a few coastal towns here in Canada that aren't on what one might call the "A" list of must-see places) however that's not the ONLY reason I need to finish my walk at Bodfari. I really do need to get the Chester.
So.. anybody..., will I be able to catch a bus Bodfari that can get me to Chester or should I plan on continuing into Prestatyn?

If you look at the following it appears that you can get from Bodfari to Mold and then from Mold to Chester. I don't know if this is the easiest way but at least it appears that you can do it.

Thank you both very much. Knowing this helps immensely with my planning. I'll keep an eye on both sites to make sure of the times for late July. A big help!
