Pontcysyllte Aqueduct – Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct , full name in Welsh: Traphont Ddŵr Pontcysyllte) is a navigable aqueduct that carries the Llangollen Canal over the valley of the River Dee in Wrexham County Borough in north east Wales. Completed in 1805, it is the longest and highest aqueduct in Great Britain, a Grade I Listed Building.

Dare you cross it? And can you do it without looking down?

Designed and built by Thomas Telford and Williams Jessop, Pontcysyllte means ‘the bridge that connects’ and is ‘the jewel in the crown’ of our World Heritage Site, a magnet for those who want to experience one of the most remarkable achievements of the industrial revolution.
You can walk across Pontcysyllte, or save your legs and take a leisurely boat ride or why not hire a boat for the day or longer from one of  the businesses based at Trevor Basin.

A great day out for all the family – don’t forget your camera for the stunning views of the Dee Valley
