Silent Sunday

Chirk Aqueduct

Published by


I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. It’s for narrow boats! I have wonderful memories of navigating across this aqueduct and then into the tunnel on the other side 🙂

    1. It’s very high up! We avoided the tunnel and went onto the road at that point (we were obviously NOT in a boat or that would have been very tricky…) 😀

        1. Never been on one, though it is perhaps the one type of boat I could sail on without feeling ill. I do like walking along towpaths – nice and flat, usually.

        2. Try it – my Mum hates boats but she is happy on a narrow boat! It is rare to notice any movement – most common is in locks but you could always get out then and work the lock instead. The other times were when I went on a river in one, and then an occasion when the canal sprung a leak!!

  2. I always wanted to ride this one! 😦 😦 And now Gilly’s gone missing? Will email her today. Know she was having some asthma issues and she’s always a busy bunny. 🙂 🙂
