Back to Llangollen


back to Llangollen 005On Saturday morning we pulled pins at 08.00 and headed towards Froncysyllte to pick up my family and give them a trip over the Pontcysylite and a trip into Llangollen. We soon had Brother in law Philip working and he certainly seemed to enjoy lifting and lowering the lift bridge… We will sort out a good lock flight next time he visits.

back to Llangollen 008Its not far then to the Aqueduct and how brave was my number one sister Sharon. She stood on the bow all the way over.  (and no I wasn’t tempted to nip up behind her and push her off).

back to Llangollen 014As soon as we got in to Llangollen basin it was chill out time. In this picture I have just told my sister that she is starting to look more and more like our Mother Joan.

back to Llangollen 031Everybody had a very good day and my Dad Ken really enjoyed the trip over the Aqueduct and then a walk around Llangollen ,and then it was  back to Inca to watch the Cricket and Football which he really enjoys.



back to Llangollen 096On Sunday morning we decided to walk up to the top of Dinas Bran. this is a castle that over looks Llangollen and is over a thousand years old.

back to Llangollen 050After nearly suffering a heart attack on the 1050 feet hike up the mountain we finally reached the castle. I am so unfit I had to stop half a dozen times on the way up to catch my breath and let my heart beat slow down. But once we got to the top it was well worth the effort.

back to Llangollen 048You can see the snowdonian mountains in the background to the west.

back to Llangollen 044And In the distance are the plains of Shropshire to the East.

back to Llangollen 052This has to be the highlight of our trip to Llangollen and I think it was just as  exhilarating than crossing the Poncysylite Aqueduct. …If ever you are in the area this is a must do.

back to Llangollen 058The view down to Llangollen.

back to Llangollen 078Guess who got a bit of Vertigo and had a few problems with the heights , I had to hug the sides of the paths and really struggled on some parts. Carolyn thought it was funny , but I didn’t.

back to Llangollen 100When we got back down to the bottom Molly and Hamish were glad of a paddle in the canal to cool off.

back to Llangollen 104It was then back to Inca and a very relaxing day sat in the sun and getting a bit of a tan.
