Presenter Carl Edwards takes a trip across ‘the stream in the sky’ on board an Anglo Welsh boat, in this evening’s ‘Coast & Country’.
Testing his head for heights, Carl is driven over the World Famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct on the Llangollen Canal.
The programme follows Carl as he saunters along the canals of Wales from the south to the north of the country.
This week he’s reached the Llangollen Canal where his day begins in a much calmer fashion as he’s treated to a horse drawn boat trip down to the Horseshoe Falls.
Taff the horse, from the Llangollen Horse Drawn Boat Centre, stepped up to pull Carl on the 45-minute boat trip that has been running since 1884 and is now thought to be one of the only four working horse drawn boats in the UK.
In the afternoon he joined Anglo Welsh to cross ‘the stream in the sky’ and said: “It honestly felt as if we were going on a theme park ride. I couldn’t look down for the first few seconds. But once I knew we were safe, it was just a stunning location and a beautiful view”.
Programme director Helen Hyde added: “It was quite a challenge to film the Aqueduct in particular. Something of that size and majesty is always difficult to translate onto the TV screen. I hope we’ve done it justice”.
Catch the programme tonight – Friday August 22nd at 8pm on ITV Cymru Wales.
