Chain Bridge, Llangollen

Chain bridge  at Llangollen is open now. The bridge has been dismantled and restored, re-establishing a link between Llangollen Canal and railway line which was closed 30 years ago.

The bridge was supported from the river bed by six oak pillars. The bridge spans  the River Dee which itself runs parallel to the railway line on one side and Llangollen Canal on the other near its source, Horseshoe Falls.

The 3 bridges spans together at the Chain Bridge Hotel and Restaurant. There is a cafe bar for customers to sit on the deck to enjoy the beauty of River Dee.

About 1/2 mile away from the Chain bridge is the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct Canal, a world heritage Site. We can walk on the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, there is a walking path and next to the walking path is the canal for the boats cruise along  River Dee. There is walking tracks for trekkers or walkers to walk around the Dee Valley.

At the end of the road, one toward Pontcysyllte and another toward The Bont, I simply love The Bont, a private fishing lake with amazing beautiful sight. We normally climb over the locked gate to to enjoy the beautiful view of the lake, it is illegal but the thrill of seeing The Bont again worth all the risk.
