Pontcysyllte aqueduct at dawn

Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

Distance to here: km ( miles)

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 businesses based at Trevor Basin. But there's one thing you have to take with you. A camera. The views are something else.
