Well here are the pictures to prove i climbed the Mountain, ok it was a big hill but it felt like i was climbing Everest.
Dinas Bran Castle stands 1000` above sea level and was built in the mid 1200`s, were Barret Homes around then? Read more here and see some better pictures than mine.

Looking down on Llangollen 750` below.

I thought this was the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct but from what i`ve read i believe it to be the Railway viaduct that carries the line to Ruabon that can be seen as you boat across the Aqueduct.

On the far right of picture can be seen the white roof of the Royal International Pavilion venue for concerts and festivals most famous for the annual Musical Eisteddfod.

NB Valerie moored in the marina at Llangollen. Only 5 boats were moored when i took this picture leaving at least 30 odd empty moorings. This time of year is the best for cruising the Llangollen Canal as high summer can be like a slow moving M25.

One of the bridges along the feeder arm that brings millions of gallons of water off the R. Dee all the way down to Hurleston Reservoir.

Above and below the remains of Valle Crucis Abbey founded by Cistercian Monks in 1201. It can
easily be visited with no mountain climbing from bridge 48 by the small motor museum along the feeder arm.
