Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

Completed in 1805 the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct spans some 307 metres across the valley above the River Dee. Not only does it serve as a canal and walk way across the valley, it also carries some 50 million litres of drinking water daily to supply South Cheshire.

There are boat operators who will take you across the Aqueduct for a barge trip you will never forget – the River Dee is some 39 metres below!

The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is part of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage Site, an 11 mile stretch of Canal that takes in some of North Wales’ most beautiful Towns, Villages and scenery.
