Llangollen Canal

We had a great half term holiday on a canal boat on the Llangollen Canal in North Wales last week. We were so lucky with the weather and such astoundingly beautiful scenery. Good too for a bit of teenagers revision as the pace is very slow and relaxing, but no distractions of TV or internet and hardly any mobile phone coverage.
We saw herons and kingfishers on the canal and no amount of ducks and ducklings.

Got to put those teenagers to work!

We visited Chirk Castle on the journey which was a good long walk and they have a brilliant farm shop so we stocked up on local produce pork pie, welsh bacon and veg.

Beautiful garden at Chirk castle.


  1. that's a great pic of the heron

  2. They stand so still for the photo don't they!

  3. Beautiful photos, especially the one of the heron.
    Wish you a wonderful week.

  4. Beautiful! I love north Wales too, we live relatively near, in Manchester, so quite often take short breaks there. Never on a canal boat though! WHat a brilliant idea. Looks like you all had a great time there!
