After pulling pins from St Martins moor we soon pass this sign. Its on the towpath side which is a perfectly OK place to moor We see this in a lot of places where people buy a house next to a canal and then do not want boats mooring anywhere near their property….. Nobs !!
With birds and a train above us we pass over the historic Chirk aqueduct. Carolyn is more than happy to steer over this one as there is no sheer drop next to you as you pass over it.Built in 1801 it consists of 10 arches and it is a very impressive 70 feet above the Ceiriog valley
Now at Whitehurst/Whitehouses tunnel and as its single working we have a twenty minute wait as 4 boats come from the other direction.
We now have to find a mooring for the night before crossing the World Heritage site of The Pontcysylite aqueduct which is also known as The Stream in the sky. Its then an early start tomorrow as we cross over and head in to the basin at Llangollen.
