In the summer of 2009, Mrs H and I went on an ill-fated fortnight’s holiday in beautiful North Wales, basing ourselves just outside of Barmouth. Although some of the photos I took that fortnight have featured in my desktop wallpaper series, this is the first time that I’ve pulled together all the shots taken on holiday by theme.

We went back to Llangollen, having pre-booked tickets on a canal boat to take us over Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, and we were not disappointed. Fantastic way to mellow out, and the views whilst travelling over the narrow aqueduct were just as enjoyable as when we’d walked over it earlier in our holiday. Highly recommended.

    We did the Llangollen Canal this Easter traveling from Wrenbury Mill. Your photos really do the scenery justice. We had a great time. The aqueducts were a bit special (including Chirk) and getting up to Llangollen via the canal narrows and then walking to horse-shoe falls on the river Dee was really pleasant.

    What lovely photos. We’ve had a great canal boat this easter on the Llangollen and created a travelogue of our journey.
