*A plucky abseiler takes the plunge down the iconic Llangollen bridge.

equipment to be put in place for the charity abseil.
DAREDEVILS took the plunge from the parapet of Llangollen’s famous bridge yesterday (Sunday).For the first time ever a charity was allowed to stage a sponsored abseiling event down the side of the world-famous structure over the River Dee.
Barnardos arranged for staff from its shop in nearby Castle Street to take the challenge to raise cash for its own funds and plucky members of the public were also encouraged to get involved.
Part of the road beside the bridge was cordoned off for most of the day to allow specialist equipment to be set up enabling the abseil to go ahead in safety.
