Restoration of local industrial heritage underway

During June 2021 the Our Picturesque Landscape project will be continuing work to restore an important piece of our local community heritage along the canal tow path in Chirk.

The Glyn Valley Tramway was a narrow gauge railway that operated between 1888 and 1935 down the Ceiriog Valley to interchanges with the Great Western Railway and the Shropshire Union Canal at Chirk. Crushed stone and stone setts produced by the Ceiriog Granite Company were loaded into boats at the Glyn Valley Tramway wharf.

The wall is the last remaining feature of this wharf and is currently in poor condition. Work will consist of specialised cleaning to reveal the colourful pattern in the brickwork and replacement of the lime mortar that holds the bricks together.

This work is funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in Wales, delivered through the Our Picturesque Landscape partnership scheme.
