LLANGOLLEN CANAL + RIVER DEE

x
From Saturday 16 April 2016
To Sunday 17 April 2016

This year we will be camping at Abbey Farm Llangollen, their web site below…

Please contact them and they will endeavour to keep us all together.

 

The Sat (relaxed) trip:

We portage to the canal then paddle up past Llangollen to the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct approximately 4 miles. Then IF you are brave enough paddle the length of the aqueduct. There is refreshments (ie a pub) on “our side” of the aqueduct, I recommend that a drink to be had AFTER the aqueduct paddle.

It will be decided Friday night by the masses if we simply paddle back to the site or ferry cars to a public car park next to the pub. So either a four mile day or an eight mile day.

The Sun (possibly not so relaxed) trip:

This day could be taken as a day of rest or as there is not much placid waters in the area it could be a white water paddle/play (as it’s not so relaxed a trip you take your life in your own hands for this one folks). Sunday will be decided at a Pow-Wow Saturday night. 

For Non Paddlers you could always walk along the canal tow path or simply head into Llangollen information here http://www.new.llangollen.org.uk/
