Carrog Bridge
Carrog Bridge
Seen here on a damp and overcast day, the bridge at Carrog dates from 1661 when it replaced a ford further upstream. But it was only after the coming of the railway some two hundred years later that Carrog became, for the upper Dee valley, a settlement of some importance with (at one time) no fewer than four inns. Only one inn remains, the Grouse, which can be seen in this view. The bridge linked the village and the station, as it still does although the railway is now a heritage line.
Afon Dyfrdwy - The River Dee
The Afon Dyfrdwy (The River Dee) is a sixty eight mile long river which rises at Llanuwchllyn in Snowdonia. The river travels in a south easterly direction, making its way across the border into England. It then changes course to a northerly direction towards its estuary, between North Wales and The Wirral Peninsula in England. It drains into Liverpool Bay and the Irish Sea.

The River Dee's course takes it through the Welsh towns of Berwyn, Corwen, Llangollen and Wrexham and the English towns of Connah's Quay and Farndon and the English City of Chester. At Wrexham the river is a natural border between Wales and England. At Connah’s Quay the river becomes tidal for the last sixteen miles.
