Trevor village, which encompasses the hamlet of Pontcysyllte, is situated on the north bank of the river Dee and at the northerly end of the Pontcysyllte aqueduct. The wharf on the canal at Trevor attracts thousands of visitors annually who come to see and walk over Thomas Telford's famous aqueduct which was completed in 1805. The wharf is also the base for many holiday barges and provides mooring for boats travelling the canal.
Garth village extends northwards from the A539 Llangollen to Wrexham road into the Ruabon mountains. Much developed in recent years the village is busy with locals and visitors en route to the nearby Panorama walk which forms part of Offa's Dyke path.
The local junior school, serving both Garth and Trevor, has one of the finest views from any school in Britain.
Its chapels have long since been converted to private dwellings but the church known as Trevor Church is still active. Nearby is Trevor Hall, once the home of a local business man, which is now a guest house.
Froncysyllte village is situated on the southern bank of the River Dee, in the foothills of the Berwyn mountains, it is also at the southern end of the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct which carries the Llangollen canal over the River Dee. it straddles the A5 London to Holyhead road.
In summer the canal is busy with holiday boats travelling to and fro between Llangollen and the Midlands.
The village is probably best known these days for it's world renowned Male Voice Choir which has won prizes in many eisteddfodau and festivals.
