Llangollen Winter Mooring Sorted At Last!

A view of Llangollen from Barber Hill

The section of canal from Trevor to Llangollen has been open to boating since the 22/12/10 when the work on the Pentrefelin Embankment was completed. We have been waiting for the winter moorings to come online since then but problems with the work not being signed off caused the delays. Last week the water level was lowered for a check of the work to be made and finally the winter mooring came online this morning. We've bought our space until the end of March 2011 online. It seems odd to me that you then have to send a signed form and a cheque or debit card payment when boat licenses can be paid for online. Anyway I'm delighted to be back in my usual winter home.

Hi Dave,

If you click on it you get a bigger picture. Ben and I love walking in the hills here, although I have to stop and get my breath back.

Hooray, at last you have made it.. Ah, now you don't really mind going back to the ice age eh?

Have fun and hopefully see you this year sometime..

Hi Sue,

We're giving the engine a two month rest, we've clocked up 5,263 hours in four years. Being on a shoreline is a nice change too. Let's hope the weather keeps warmer because we'll still have frozen taps up here. Hope to see you both this year.

Hi Anne,

We're here until the end of March.
It is nice to be settled for a couple of months. Looking at going on the Trent and Mersey to Trent Lock and then on the River Soar near Loughborough or perehaps the Erewash so should be close to you this year. It would be nice to see you.
