Chirk and the Ceiriog Valley
a brief guide... following the River Ceiriog from high in the Berwyn mountains to the historic border town of Chirk
...includes part of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage Site.
The Ceiriog begins as a trickle under the Berwyn ridge, which rises to 830 metres at Cadair Berwyn, and rapidly becomes Wales’ fastest flowing river. The Berwyn peaks are crowned with Bronze Age monuments and are crossed by ancient routes linking the Ceiriog with the Dee and Tanat valleys.
