Llangollen Canal at Trevor
Llangollen Canal at Trevor
After leaving the Pont Cysyllte aqueduct the canal turns towards Llangollen in what is a concrete trough. This was built relatively recently as a solution to the continuous slippage of the canal towards the Afon Dyfrdwy (Cambrian River Dee) which had been a problem off and on since the canal was built. In places this trough is bolted to the solid rock to ensure it stays in place. (Thomas Telford and other canal engineers would have loved this technique if he had had it available 200 years ago). The durability of the concrete gets over the problem of bank erosion as well.SJ2839 : Bank protection on the Llangollen CanalSJ2839 : Bank improvements on the Llangollen Canal
