Our readers capture a famous landmark that begins in the Welsh mountains and ends near the Irish Sea.

For most residents of Cheshire, the River Dee is synonymous with the section upon which Chester was built upon. The river is arguably the focal point of the city that has shaped the geography and everyday life of the residents for centuries.

However, this is just a fraction of the waterway that is over 100 km in length and has served as a natural national border between England and Wales.

The river source is found the mountains of Snowdonia and snakes eastwards, passing Llangollen and the west edge of Cheshire.

The section west of Chester is actually an artificial channel excavated in the 18th century, this ends at the Dee Estuary which separates the west side of the Wirral Peninsula from North Wales.
