The Vine Touring Park, Arddleen, Powys.
Today we took an easy 90 min ride to the above Caravan and Motorhome CL site in Powys.
The site has been modernised and has large self serviced hard standings in well kept grounds with an area to exercise Layla. The weather was beautifully warm when we arrived so out came the chairs and we enjoyed soaking up the sun and relaxing.
Opposite the entrance to the site is a lane which leads to the Montomery Canal, so after an evening meal cooked in the trusty Remoska we set off for an evening walk along the towpath.
The building of the Montgomery canal commenced in the 1790’s and fell into disuse in 1936, it runs through Powys and Shropshire for 33 miles from the Llangollen canal to Newtown via Welshpool. There is an active canal society that are restoring and maintaining the locks and stretches of the canal bringing some stretches back into navigable use.
