Over The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct To Llangollen Basin

Looking back across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
We left our mooring near Whitehouse Tunnel by nine o'clock, up early because the trains run close by and we heard one about five am and another about seven am. But an early start was good as we wanted to moor at Llangollen. A good trip really we followed two other boats across the aqueduct and ended up doing the narrows in convoy with another following us. In the mooring basin there were just four spaces, I've never seen it so full. We paid £12 for two nights mooring with electricity, paying at the Horse-drawn Boat Reception as there's nobody employed by CART collecting the mooring fees.......although I can't see them issuing mooring tickets for nothing.

It's pretty full here
