Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is the longest and highest aqueduct in Britain and is often called 'the stream in the sky.' Everyone should experience a trip over Thomas Telford and William Jessop's awe-inspiring aqueduct, by boat or on foot - it's a Scheduled Ancient Monument, a World Heritage Site, and a Grade I Listed structure.

The aqueduct, which transports the Llangollen Canal over the beautiful River Dee valley, is a massive 1,000 feet long and 126 feet high. The first stone was laid in July 1795 and was completed in 1805 using local stone.

Head to the Visitor Centre to find out more about the history of this amazing structure.
