The Bont, North Wales


Wish to do a project for my art project and my husband agreed to drive me to North Wales. We spent part of the day at the Llangollen Train Station and on our way back home. We visited the Chain Bridge Hotel, the Chain  Bridge is now open as it was closed for a period of time for repair work on the bridge. Since we were at the Chain Bridge, we decided to revisit the The Bont which is located under the towering Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

There is 1 car track road leading to Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and at the end of the road, the left leading to The Bont and the right turn leading to Pontcysllte Aqueduct, a world Heritage Site in North Wales.  We followed the left turn leading to the The Bont, about 200 yards there is some farmhouses and we can park our car at the side of the road.

The Bont is a private lake for private members of the fishing club. There are two paddock gates and we climbed over the gate to access to the lake. The public are not allow into this lake. This secret gem is a beautiful and stunning picturesque with Autumn falls.  There is a house sitting right at the edge of the lake and a commercial building next to it. The beautiful trees reflecting on the still water with the glorious sun shinning through the leaves.

We only stay for half an hour at this lake due to  we reached here about 5.30 p.m. and running out of time to visit the Pontoysyllte Aqueduct. I will come back again, I have no idea why I love this place so much and keep going back again and again.  I have to share this gorgeous place to all my friend if you are in North Wales, make a visit to this gorgeous place in the lonely planet
