WATERSIDE CYCLING
 

The Llangollen Canal

Download

Crosses the border between England and Wales. Its combination of picturesque countryside and breath-taking engineering. The dizzying Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, which carries the canal over the River Dee, is a must-see. The remarkable feat of canal engineering is 125 feet high, and the canal is unprotected on one side, giving the impression of a sheer drop from a narrowboat. The structure is deservedly a World Heritage Site. Following the canal to the Llangollen end will take you into the foothills of Snowdonia and more routes to explore.
