Chirk Aqueduct

Completed in 1801 (just four years before its big brother at Pontcysyllte), Chirk Aqueduct offers fantastic views.

There's a car park just off Castle Road right opposite the aqueduct. And Chirk train station is less than five minutes' walk away too.

Once you're there, take a gentle stroll across and grab a picture or two for the album.

Then keep going along the towpath and across the Welsh border into England (where you'll pass picturesque cottages and be a skip away from The Poacher's Pocket and Bridge Inn pubs). Or turn back and tackle 'the Darkie' tunnel which - you guessed it - is very dark and something of an adventure!
