The undated plaque nearby says: "Built by Thomas Telford 1795-1805 there are 18 piers made of local stone, the central ones over the Dee being 126' high up to the ironwork.
The canal runs through an iron trough, 1007' long, 11'10" wide and 5'3" deep, the largest in Britain. The iron was supplied by William Hazeldine from his foundries at Shrewsbury and nearby Cefn Mawr.
Total cost 47,000
Water is fed from the Dee at the Horseshoe falls at Llantysilio near Llangollen."
