Dee Valley  from Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
Dee Valley from Pontcysyllte Aqueduct
Looking 126ft down to the Dee Valley from the magnificent aqueduct which forms a key part of the Llangollen Canal, standing majestically at the foot of the Horseshoe Pass, three miles east of Llangollen. At over 1000 feet long, Pontcysyllte is the longest and highest cast-iron aqueduct in the world. Treasured by British Waterways, it is today a protected Grade I listed building, a Welsh National Monument and is one of the seven wonders of the British Inland Waterways System. It is of course still used for its original purpose, being crossed by more than a thousand canal boats a year. Pontcysyllte Aqueduct was designed by Thomas Telford. Construction started in 1795 and it was opened on 26th Nov 1805.
