Having winded at the marina entrance, we returned to the towpath moorings, moored up, paid the man for our moorings, and then headed into Llangollen.

The farrier was making new shoes for one of the horses used for the trip boats from the wharf.

We bought fish and chips from the chippie on the A5, and sat by the River Dee to eat it.

It was really great to explore more of Llangollen than when we were last here 6 years ago.
