The village is famous for a number of things, if you have ever driven through it then it is famous for two bad bends by the pub! But it must be most famous for the fact that the Ellesmere canal, known to most of us as the Llangollen canal, passes right through the village, climbing as it goes first through three conventional locks set in the most beautiful of surroundings and then as it plunges under the main A41 road it opens immediately into the famous three chamber staircase lock.
the boater there are all the usual BWB services,
water, sewage disposal, moorings and a turning point as well as private
moorings and boat repairs available near the top lock.
