About this product
- DescriptionThis book takes the reader on a pictorial journey along the entire length of the Dee in over 200 old picture postcards, accompanied by informative captions. Our journey starts in North Wales, high above the village of Llanuwchllyn, by a stream which flows from ancient rocks into a sheet of still, deep water called Lake Bala. It is from this source that the River Dee flows. The river wanders through the former counties of Merionethshire and Denbighshire, and eventually reaches the town of Llangollen, home of the international Eisteddfod. With romantic views of the ruins of Valle Crucis Abbey and Castell Dinas Bran, and scenes of the Dee as it flows over Telford's Horseshoe Falls, we leave Wales and head into England. Crossing the border, the Dee meanders through low-lying farmland into Cheshire where it encounters the historic city of Chester. We w accompany the Dee on the final leg of our pictorial journey as it turns through the Cheshire and Flintshire countryside and emerges into the estuary to form the natural coastal boundary between the Wirral peninsula and North Wales.
