So here I am, below front right of picture, moored up waiting for the drive plate to be fitted. The red boat to the front of me was as far as I got just about to go under the bridge to moor up.
So at least it gave me the chance to investigate below the aqueduct.

In the picture below boats coming over the aqueduct left of picture have to make a left turn

through the bridge to reach Llangollen. I am moored to the right and i can tell you it was entertaining watching the holiday boats getting it wrong and hitting the concrete edge on the right. Speed was the biggest cause of the catastrophe's.

Walking across the Aqueduct made a change from boating and above about half way is the handle
that if un-bolted and pulled up will drain the Aqueduct.

Above and below views long distance and zoom of the bridge that carries one of the roads from Trevor village.

The next 3 pictures give a view from below the Aqueduct. There are some real good walks along the River Dee down here.

Below the end of the basin I had originally intended to moor. This part of the canal was originally intended to reach Chester but instead this area became a large loading area with loads from mines up the valley being transported to the wharf on tramways and on the wharf opposite where I am moored some of the old tramway tracks are still in place.
