Burgedin to Llanymynech
Sunday, 10th June, 2007 10 a.m.
The route in 2007 starts at Burgedin Locks, re-opened in 1998, at the junction with the Guilsfield Arm of the Montgomery Canal. This is now in parts a nature reserve. The dawdle will pass by the Arddleen picnic area with its views of Criggion and Rodney’s Pillar. The route criss-crosses the main A483 Manchester to Swansea road, and altogether there are four road crossings and two locks along the route.
A spectacular section of the route crosses the Vyrnwy Aqueduct and will be one of the highlights of the day. After passing through Carreghofa, the Dawdle will end at the new Visitor Centre and Heritage area in Llanymynech.

More details of the route, with details of parking, toilets etc. will be sent to all entrants.
Please note the Dawdle is for portable craft only due to the road crossings.
Thanks are due to the staff and Management of British Waterways and to the volunteers from FMC, SUCS and others in helping to put on this event. This is a Shropshire Union Canal Society event organised by SUCS with the assistance of Friends of the Montgomery Canal.
