The Llangollen Canal is the now the busiest and most popular pleasure cruising waterway in the British Waterways' network. Running for forty-six miles from the main line of the Shropshire Union Canal near Nantwich, it wends its way across rural Cheshire, into the Welsh mountains, to a terminus by the river Dee in the Vale of Llangollen. Historically, the waterway is most of the finally completed route of the original Ellesmere Canal; planned and built by such famous engineers as Thomas Telford and William Jessop. Among its outstanding engineering structures are the aqueducts at Chirk and Pontcysyllte. The latter - which celebrates the bicentenary of its official opening in 2005 - is the premier 'wonder' of Britain's waterways. Written by Harry Arnold, renowned waterway journalist and photographer - and author of the book on the linking Montgomery Canal - this history features many photographs from his extensive archive; taken and collected during boating and working on the Llangollen Canal for over four decades.
