Today was a sunny cold day as we headed to Llangollen to see the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage Site which was built in 1805 to carry the canal over the River Dee. It is the highest canal aquaeduct ever built and is a most impressive piece of engineering. We travelled along the aquaeduct named the Vale of Llangollen in a canal boat which was nice. We also walked along a path which in the 18th century was used by horses to pull the canal barges. The view over the Welsh valleys was spectacular.
We then drove to T Y Mawr Country Park to view the Cefn Viaduct which is supported by 19 arches and is still in use today. Another amazing feat of the times.
