Pontcysyllte Aqueduct – Vale of Llangollen

For many years I have traveled past the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct when I have been on my bikes and when heading through Llangollen, onto the Horseshoe Pass and beyond, but in all those years I have never stopped to investigate it further.

Last week however my wife and I drove there to meet my daughter her husband and three of our grandchildren – and had chose the meeting place as a) a interesting place to check out and b) by driving into North Wales from our Manchester homes we were not in breach of any Covid 19 restrictions –  England’s rule of six.

There is plenty of information about the aqueduct online so I wont write about it here other than to say it really is stunning and if it had been built this year it would be impressive, the fact is was completed in 1805 makes it a pretty remarkable piece of engineering and apparently it’s the highest canal in the world!

There are pictures in the gallery that you will find below the links to other recent posts.
