Horseshoe Falls

A masterpiece of Thomas Telford engineering

Located on the River Dee, near to Llantysilio, this masterpiece of Thomas Telford Engineering is where the Pontcysllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage site begins. He designed this weir to draw water from the River Dee in to the canal, and it became a stunning addition to the landscape. At 460ft (140M) long, it’s a sight to behold.

Just a 3km walk from the town of Llangollen, or perhaps take the magnificent steam train from Llangollen station if the timetable allows. Get off at Berwyn Station and in around 10 minutes, enjoy the idyllic scene that awaits you at the Horseshoe Falls.
