Our short time in Llangollen over, this morning we eased out of the basin and entered the narrows. Travelling with the flow made for far easier going, although we still bumped the bottom a bit. We did meet a few hire boats on route but fortunately at the wider parts of the canal. We crossed the 'stream in the sky' (Pontcysyllte) before passage through the two tunnels and then Chirk Aquaduct. As we reached the end of the Aquaduct we passed a sign saying 'Welcome to England'. Our destination was only a mile further on by the Poachers Pocket P.H. There was a free spot directly outside which we took advantage of whilst we stopped for lunch. The mooring was ok, but had the potential to be a bit noisy if the pub got busy in the evening. So after lunch we moved the boat a couple of hundred yards further on. We will probably stay here for a day or so to recuperate from our Welsh adventure.
