Overnight in the carpark, Chirk

Then headed over to Wales. Conwy is an old town, with the obligatory castle. Stayed overnight in an overflow carpark by the yacht club, in suburbia. Then visited Llanberris and took the train up the mountain. Takes an hour to get up there as it is very steep and you need to wait at times in a couple of places where there are two tracks, for trains going the opposite way. A lot of people walking up and/or down. Freezing at the top and was all clouded over, but cleared a short distance from the top.

Chirk was an interesting little town. We only went there because there was a carpark you could stay in for free. Just down the road there was an aqueduct, built sometime in the 1800s. our end was in Wales and the other end in England. The canal boats went through quite a long, narrow tunnel at the end of the aqueduct. A very nice walk along the canal, looking at all the boats, houses and pub.
