Trevor Basin today provides a much needed mooring and turning facility for canal barges north of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, before venturing on along the narrow navigation feeder channel of the Llangollen Canal to the Llangollen Marina. The Trevor Basin has often been referred to as the “tuning fork” after its shape by locals.
