Llangollen is a town of 3000 or so residents in North East Wales, just an hour or so from Liverpool, Manchester and the outskirts of Birmingham. If you have ever driven into North Wales on the A5 you will recognise the view as the mountains rear up and close in around you and Castle Dinas Bran rises up on it’s own hill top to your right. The valley has been carved by the River Dee, a magnet for white water kayakers, canoeists and rafters from all over the world.
