The River Dee/Afon Dyfrdwy heading for the estuary
The River Dee was canalised in 1737 (shown here to good effect) to try and maintain a deep water channel through the salt marshes (Salt Ney) for trade into Chester. This must have been a partial success as industry was established along the banks of the river for many years, however, the channel eventually silted up and trade died. Nevertheless, in the recent past, Airbus Industries have started to use a shallow draft barge to move the huge A380 wings up river to Mostyn Docks for onward transportation by sea. The footbridge at Saltney Ferry can also be seen and the even newer, white, single support suspension bridge at Connah's Quay some six miles away.
