9th - 13th July 2020 (4 nights)
From: Nantwich (Shropshire Union
To: Llangollen (Llangollen Canal)
VIA: Pontycysyllte Aqueduct
Hopefully we’ll have been able to spend a few days moored in Llangollen – if not, we’ll have chugged back towards Chirk and will then make the return Journey to Llangollen to pick up our new guests on the 9th. Once our guests have joined us, we’ll begin our journey turning right at the basin and over the Pontycysyllte Aqueduct towards Chirk, passing through Whitehouse Tunnel (191 yards) and Chirk Tunnel (459yards) we’re back in peaceful countryside. We'll probably moor a little before the 2 locks at New Marton for our first night.
Next day. we'll have a leisurely start and pass by the Montgomery Canal.... pausing perhaps rather than passing through 4 locks – ( the 1st pair being a staircase, followed by 2 single ones) to take a look. and head on the main Llangollen towards Ellesmere. On Leaving Ellesmere, we’ll make our way through Ellesmere Tunnel (87 yards) – passing Blake Mere and probably chug on to somewhere near Colemere and then tie up for the night.
Our final full day will see us chugging leisurely onwards to Whitchurch where we'll moor in reasonable time and moor here late afternoon so our guests can explore before they leave us the following morning after breakfast
