Wrenbury Church Lift Bridge

A latish start this morning, but then we were not going far today. Now we are actually on the Llangollen canal we have plenty of time so short journeys are the order of the day. Soon after we set off we passed this massive house and even larger barns, which is Bache House Farmhouse.

Not what you expect to see alongside the canal, but the chickens were obviously very at home on it.

having moored up, and had lunch we took a walk into Wrenbury taking the footpath from Wrenbury Church lift bridge, takes you first to St. Margaret’s church.

“Dog-whippers pew”, the dog-whipper (later called a Beadle) threw out unruly dogs, and was also expected to keep dozing parishioners awake during particularly tedious sermons.
