Walking From Trevor To Llangollen

Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Trevor

Todays walk started with a bus ride to Trevor with Liz, Connie and Ben. From there we began our walk by walking down to Trevor basin and following the canal towpath across the Pontcysyllte aqueduct to the lift bridge at Froncysyllte. We then crossed the A5, climbed up Methodist Hill and followed a sign posted footpath through a wood and alongside Pen-y-Graig Quarry to a view point. We continued to climb and then the track levels out before reaching a road and it's uphill again. The next stile is hidden from view but we knew where it was, so we continued our climb until we crossed a field to climb another stile onto a bridleway leading to Croes yr Esgob. From there it was all down hill and we were very pleased about that. Here are some views on the way making it worth the climb. Detailed walk routes can be found in 'Walks Around Llangollen' by David Berry......a Kittiwake Guide.
