School children enjoyed boat trip across Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

Wrexham school children enjoy boat trip across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

On Thursday 9 November a class of Year 4 and 5 pupils from St Anne’s Catholic Primary School in Wrexham enjoyed a boat trip aboard our ‘Little Star’ (‘Seren Fach’) trip boat.

The 45-minute boat trip took them along the Llangollen Canal and across the UNESCO World Heritage Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

The famous aqueduct carries the Llangollen Canal 38 metres above the Dee Valley.

Our knowledgeable team provided commentary on board, so the children were able to learn about the aqueduct and the history of the Llangollen Canal as they cruised gently along.

Rebecca Hughes, a teacher at St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, said:

“The children had a lovely time on Seren Fach. The tour guide was fantastic – so enthusiastic and bubbly and the children really engaged with her.

“We were given lots of information that was pitched just right for the age of the children. What an amazing experience to cross the aqueduct on such a lovely boat. Diolch yn fawr!”

Anglo Welsh is offering free boat trips to local schools in November and December.

‘Little Star’ offers space for up to 48 passengers and over the winter, public trips are running at weekends only.
