Heron Map – Llangollen and Montgomery Canals

This Heron Map is a comprehensive map of the Llangollen and Montgomery Canals, designed for both waterway and leisure users. It provides thorough coverage of the canals, focusing primarily on the waterways while still including relevant information for other leisure users. The map is accompanied by helpful information panels and photographs to enhance the user experience.

Discover the beauty of the Llangollen and Montgomery Canals with the help of a tourist map, scaled at 1:56,000. The map also includes detailed town plans of Llangollen, Ellesmere, Whitchurch, Welshpool, and Newtown, scaled at 1:12,500.

This comprehensive map provides all the necessary information for both boaters and tourists. The boating section covers navigation details, visitor moorings, marinas, boatyards, boat rental services, and other essential facilities. Additionally, there is a section dedicated to tourist information, which includes details on the best places to visit, such as nature reserves, parks, and churches. Tourists can also find information on long-distance paths, public toilets, caravan parks, campsites, and local pubs.

The Llangollen Canal boasts picturesque views, ranging from green pastures to tree-lined lakes, making it one of the most beautiful canals. The canal passes through the medieval town of Whitchurch and the lovely market town of Ellesmere, leading to the charming town of Llangollen, renowned for its annual International Musical Eisteddfod. Additionally, the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is a breathtaking architectural and engineering feat, spanning 1000 ft over the River Dee at a maximum height of 126 ft. As a World Heritage Site, it is one of the most inspiring sights in the country. If you are looking to hire a boat in this area, then this is the guide for you.

The Montgomery Canal branches off from Llangollen at Frankton Junction. Although it was not navigable for boats for a long time, it has received extensive restoration work, which is still ongoing. The canal is home to rare aquatic plant life, which has resulted in much of it being classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Additionally, it is surrounded by a number of nature reserves. There are two sections of the canal that can be navigated: one between Frankton Junction and Arddleen, and another between Arddleen and Berriew, which can only be accessed via the slipway in Welshpool. Canoe enthusiasts are also drawn to the canal, as some parts are restricted to canoes only.
