Congestion On The Llangollen Canal

Continuing this week’s theme of nautical(ish) photos from last summer’s holiday in North Wales, here’s a shot actually taken from onboard a boat.

The Llangollen Canal is incredibly popular these days, and that does cause problems if you’re the impatient type. There’s a stretch of narrows between Llangollen and Trevor that’s only wide enough for a single narrowboat at a time; and, to make things even more entertaining, the narrows aren’t straight, making it impossible to see if there’s another boat already in the narrows before you enter. If you run into another boat, the only thing to do is for one of you to reverse back the way you came, let the other boat pass … and try your luck once more.
