Pontcysyllte Aqueduct Canal Trip

Monday this week saw us Meeting a canal boat at Llangollen for a trip over the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, we have walked over the aqueduct many times, but it was great to have the experience of going over by boat. Though it was crampt and there was little room for Arrianna in her Car seat the staff were wonderful and helpful. Through out the Trip there was a commentary which was both informative and hilarious. The trip lasted for 2 hours and was lovely and relaxing. 

The Aquaduct was built by Thomas Telford and completed in 1805. It stands an amazing 1,007 ft (307 m) long, 11 ft (3.4 m) wide and 5.25 ft (1.60 m) deep. and carries the Llangollen Canal over the River Dee.
