Tuesday 6th May 2008


The bridge at Llangollen is one of the seven wonders of Wales. It is claimed that this was the site of the first stone bridge over the River Dee. The original bridge was built in 1345 by Bishop of St Asaph John Trevor I, before being rebuilt during the Elizabethan period. It is said that the structure remains the same today.

The Dee is noted for its kayaking and canoeing.

From Llangollen to Corwen the old railway line is still in use, running alongside the River Dee. The locomotives are old ’Thomas the Tank Engine’ ones.

Dandelions abounded for much of the journey today, nowhere more closely packed than at the entrance to the National Eistedfodd centre in Llangollen.

At the entrance there is a fabulous sculpture of a harp.
