Our first time here was back in May 2003 when we pent three weeks getting to Llangollen and back which included exploring the Montgomery as well. At the Hurleston locks there were more boats coming down than up so the canal, hopefully, is becoming less crowded now.
The lock keeper told us that 2000 boats have visited this canal so far this year! He is there to help and advise but nobody from the waiting boats came to help. The canal is now a feeder taking water from the river Dee at Llangollen to keep the Hurleston reservoir full. That is over 40 miles of canal and the significant flow is evident at each lock as the water passes through the by weir.
