The August winner of the Wonders of Wrexham 2018 Calendar competition has been announced as Steve Harvey from Bangor on Dee.

Steve’s shot of the Monk’s Bridge over the Llangollen canal just outside Chirk was judged the best of all the entries and judges were once again impressed with the quality of entries.

Steve gives his photo the amusing description of “Chugging along the Llangollen Canal” which is exactly what many people did for their holidays in August.


Steve said:

“I am very pleased to have gained the August spot.  The canal is a beautiful place to take photos and I am often taken with the spectacular scenery that surrounds it.  Wrexham has some wonderful “little gems” and we should all be grateful that we live in such a naturally beautiful area.”

There’s now only two months left of competition and if you’re an amateur photographer with an eye for a little gem of your own you can enter your photos for September by sending them to
