Moored narrowboat near Burland in Cheshire
Narrowboat "Chester's Gal" is moored north-west of Platt's Bridge, No 5 across the Llangollen Canal near Burland in Cheshire.

The Llangollen Branch of the Shropshire Union Canal starts by the River Dee at Llantysilio and leads to the main line at Hurleston Junction, a distance of 46 miles, with twenty-one locks. Water is supplied from the River Dee to the canal, and on to Hurleston Reservoir, a source of domestic water supplies. This results in a noticeable flow of water from west to east; unusual in a canal.

The Llangollen Canal was started in 1795, but not completed for many years. It was eventually absorbed by the Shropshire Union Company in 1846.
