Yet another early start and we pulled pins at 07.15 for the final leg of our journey into the basin at Llangollen . As you enter Llangollen the canal becomes one way working due to the width , so you are advised to send a crew mate ahead to check you have clear passage.
Arriving in the basin and there are plenty of spaces available . At £6 a night and with free electric you cant beat it. The washing machine and tumble dryer haven't stopped and we can use our electric fires in the evenings… Just the ticket
How about that for a Pork chop. I've not had one like that with the Kidney still on it since The Harris Bacon Factory shop in Totnes closed over 25 years ago. And yes it was delicious and went down a treat with a bottle of the red stuff..
Our next excursion out was to conquer Dinas Bran. The first building placed at Dinas Bran was not the castle which now stands in ruins on top of the hill but an iron age hill fort built around 600 BC.In English it’s called ‘Crow Castle’, but the Welsh title, ‘Castell Dinas Bran’ literally means Castle of the City of Crows. A steep walk on foot is the only option for reaching the summit and what a climb it is. I must have stopped a half a dozen times to catch my breath while Carolyn and Hamish just marched on up.
After a good couple of days in Llangollen it will soon be time to leave We have enjoyed it just as much this year as we did last year and no doubt will end up here again in the future.
