Day 3 llandegla to Castle Mill – 16.5 miles

Went to the Llandegla post office and general stores at 0800 for sandwiches and guess what – no sandwiches, they are closing down. So we set off with no sandwiches this morning! We had had a lovely 500m climb through Llandegla forest and then went down to Worlds End, we had already seen Sodom on day 1, so what next?
After 6 1/2 hours walking in extremely hot weather we arrived at the Llangollen aqueduct and found the Telford Arms open and serving food (and drink). So, a great respite with BLT sandwiches and 6 pints for Vic & Chris (tea for Dave & Paul of course!)
A very interesting walk over the aqueduct  (something of a challenge for those of us that hate heights!) Watching the many boats crossing over..

Later, we passed by Chirk Castle, finally artiving at The Swan Inn at 18:30. Two dirty beers and a shower, now we are ready for dinner and planning for tommow.
Tomorrow we travel to Llanymynech from Castle Mill, which should be just 13 miles, a little less challenging than the last two days..

  1. Sounds lovely from here, you don’t feel the hard work quite the same at home!? Tomorrow sounds good too; though all a real challenge.. Keep smiling, plodding and drinking –
