Dee Valley on Llangollen travel guide
Travel Guide for Wales and England >  Valleys in Wales and England >  Dee Valley
The Dee Valley is situated in the county of Denbighshire which lies to the east of Conwy County and north of the county of Powys. The valley is a place that has been visited from very ancient times. There was a steam tramway and two steam railway branch lines running along the valley. The whole area covers around forty miles and consists of Iron Age forts, the largest natural lake in Wales, Roman ruins, Pagan monuments, Dark Age Castles, well preserved castles and some outstanding mansions. Within the valley is a very charming canal and two main rivers, with the main one being the River Dee.
The River Dee is around seventy miles long and rises above Llanuwchllyn in the hills in the ‘Dolgellau gold belt of Merioneth (Gwynedd) and before it passes through Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) it is known as Afon Dyfrdwy or 'The Little Dee'. It then flows north via Chester, and discharges to the sea into an estuary between Wales and the Wirral in England. The river has been famed as a mixed fishery with Salmon and trout fishing, mostly in the upper waters and a good coarse fishery in the lower reaches. On its travels it heads eastwards through the very picturesque vale of Llangollen, through the welsh Foothills near Bangor-on-dee and then meanders northwards along the Cheshire plain to its tidal limit at Chester.
