This stretch of the Montgomery Canal set in beautiful surroundings, starts from Bridge No 69 at the Junction with the Llangollen Canal at Lower Frankton through Frankton Locks to just beyond Lockgate Bridge No 70 on the Montgomery Canal proper. It also includes the basin and Weston Arm. There is good parking with ample space at both ends of the stretch. The post code for the parking at the Llangollen Canal junction (Bridge No 69) is SY11 4PB.
When visiting this stretch to fish, please respect the areas sign posted No Fishing particularly around the locks and mooring positions.
Dee Anglers are allowed to fish our stretches of the Shropshire Union Canal at Backford and Christleton and also the Weaver Navigation at Sutton Weaver. Those who are ONLY looking to fish these waters together with the Dee Anglers stretches of the River Dee, the Prees branch of the Llangollen Canal and the Mongomery Canal at Lower Frankton can do so by purchasing a Dee Anglers annual membership from Chester Tackle Locker, 140 Tarvin Road, Boughton, Chester, CH3 5EE (http://tacklelocker.co.uk/)
