Shout out to below for replying to my question ‘Llangollen canal help, and handy hints required’. If I’ve missed anybody apologies.
We are back after a fabulous week on the Llangollen canal. We were lucky with the weather apart from getting very wet one afternoon as we were in the last of the locks at Grindley Brook and a storm hit.
All went smoothly apart from the narrow parts when someone from another boat had gone ahead to check for oncoming boats and then returned and said it was clear rather than stopping any boats from entering and radioing / phoning back so, bedlam.
Eat out a lot. All excellent food.
Bull & Dog, Coton. We moored at Bridge 43 and got a cab. Excellent cab company Wem Taxis
