It had rained all night and there were ominous clouds everywhere in the morning, but we managed to escape a drenching on our travels.

The remains of Castell Dinas Bran (Crow Castle) can be seen looming above Llangollen in the distance. Said to be the possible burial site of the Holy Grail of the Arthurian legends, it served as the home of Madoc ap Gruffydd Maelor in the 13th Century and possibly a stronghold for Eliseg, Prince of Powys in the 6th Century.
