Clearly a feat of engineering - I fitted a bathroom recently which leaks more than Telford's design. A challenge to vertigo sufferers, nonetheless it is worth a visit no matter what your head for heights may be. Wonderful views of the Dee valley. Also nearby,...More

Wow! The view from the Aqueduct of the surrounding countryside is breathtaking, & on a beautiful sunny day is picturesque, take your camera, you'll regret it if you don't! Once over the Aqueduct, follow the path in the Country Park below for some stunning views...More

If you have an interest in aqueducts or general architecture you'll love it. Everyone else, it's a nice, short walk across a valley with excellent views up and down the valley. It's very high up, but has a sturdy rail above waist height to cling...More

We definitely veered quite a distance off track to see this. We had read that "Jone's The Boats" did a return boat ride between 12 and 4 pm on the hour every hour for 7 pound 50. This apparently isn't true as only 2 rides...More

Having seen the aqueduct on the TV series 'Escape to the Country' before we left Australia, we were determined to visit the site when holidaying in Wales. We were not disappointed. It is an amazing structure considering the era in which it was constructed and...More

What a view. If your brave enough to walk over, the views are amazing. I’m not scared of heights but this had my toes curling, but so glad I walked. I got to the middle and walked back, and was pleased I did it.

We walked up to it, all prepared to walk over the aqueduct, but when I got close up i couldn't bring myself to walk on the path. The rail is high enough but if you're afraid of heights, you can see through the bars and...More
