This Heron waterways map covers the Llangollen and Montgomery Canals. The map provides detailed information for both waterways and leisure users, and it is complimented by information panels and photographs.

The Llangollen Canal is one of the most picturesque canals with its stunning scenery varying from green pastures to tree lined lakes. It meanders it way through the medieval town of Whitchurch, the lovely market town of Ellesmere and situated at the end of the canal is the pretty town of Llangollen, world renowned for its annual International Musical Eisteddfod. Then there is the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, surely one of, if not the most inspiring architectural and engineering sights anywhere in the country. A World Heritage Site, it spans the River Dee for 1,000ft at a height of 126ft.

The tranquil Montgomery Canal leaves the Llangollen at Frankton Junction. Closed to boats for many years, it has undergone much restoration, which continues today. Much of the canal has Site of Special Scientific Interest status due to rare aquatic plant life and is bordered by several nature reserves. There's a seven mile navigable section from Frankton Junction and another between Aardleen and Berriew, only accessible by slipway in Welshpool. The canal is also popular with canoeists with some sections accessible only to canoes.

This cruising and tourist map of the Llangollen and Montgomery Canals is at a scale of 1:56,000. There are detailed town plans of Llangollen, Ellesmere, Whitchurch, Welshpool and Newtown at a scale of 1:12,500.

This map includes navigation and historical information, visitor moorings, marinas and boatyards, boat hire centres, facilities for the boat user, shops and distance markers. Information for the tourist includes tourist information centres, places of interest, pubs, nature reserves, parks, churches, long distance paths, public toilets and caravan and camp sites.

Published by Heron Maps in 2016, and it is the 2nd edition of this map.
