The Langollen Canal

I arrived at Llangollen with a fair amount of time to spare as I didn't know what the parking would be like, but as it happens I got an all day space without too much trouble and thus had time to visit the Llangollen Canal wharf, which is just up the hill from the station. I say 'just', but that part of Wales has a lot of vertical, and my legs were sore when I got up there! The first set of pictures on this page is of course from that visit, showing what is a working wharf, albeit for tourist boat trips, some horse-drawn.

Later on in the day, after I had travelled on the Llangollen Railway, I set out south to the place I would be staying the night, but I still had plenty of time and thus before I had got very far I turned off to have a walk along a stretch of the Llangollen canal and out over the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. This magnificent structure, designed by Thomas Telford, is high, narrow, and not recommended for anyone scared of heights! But heights don't bother me as such, and the second set of pictures show the aqueduct and the many boats that were going over it when I was there.
