  • Great place, full of canal history and spectacular views from the aquaduct (if you dare to walk over it!). Parking is free but limited spaces. The visitor centre is good, with friendly people and loads of information available, also drinks and snacks are available from a canal boat cafe. The nearby canal wharf at Trevor is also good.
  • If you passing by the area - just park and take a quick visit to one of the most amazing engineering accomplishments. Plus, what a beautiful view.
  • the walk over the bridge is stunning, and the views on either side are worth soaking in a little. there is also access to ty mawr country park down a staircase, from which you can really get an idea of the scale of this impressive and historic structure (completed in 1805).
  • Famous Aqueduct designed and built 1750-1805 by the famous Thomas Telford architect. Amazing feat of engineering still entirely structurally sound to this day.
  • Amazing historical place. Once on the Aqueduct & you realise just how high you are above the river dee below it just brings home what an amazing feat of engineering by Telfold this is. Good pub nearby for drinks & food plus a cafe in site. Well worth a visit.
