Why are we doing this?

This project aims to promote and enhance the 'four great highways' of Llangollen, by providing landscape and engineering improvements works to enhance access, biodiversity and visibility to and interpretation of:

  • The Llangollen Canal and World Heritage Site
  • The former Ruabon to Barmouth railway line
  • The River Dee
  • Thomas Telford’s historic London to Holyhead Road (the A5)

The aim is to improve the resident and visitor experience and increase dwell times. To acheive this, four key areas have been identified:

  1. Wharf
  2. Access points to the Wharf, Railway and Lower Dee Mill Park
  3. Lower Dee Mill Park
  4. Signage & Wayfinding


Proposed works in each of these key areas will likely include:

  • Implement improvements adjacent to the Wharf including seating, access and signage
  • Improved signage to the Railway
  • Improved accessibility and signage to Lower Dee Mill Park
  • Enhancement, repair and reimagining Lower Dee Mill Park

What do we want to know?


At this stage of the consultation, we are seeking people’s early views on the four areas we have proposed for improvement.  These views will then be used to inform designs which we will share for further consultation before Easter.  Details of future engagement sessions will be shared on our website in due course.
