Winding hole at the End of Chirk Aqueduct

Winding hole at the End of Chirk Aqueduct 

Shropshire Union Canal, Llangollen branch.

The aqueduct was designed by civil engineer Thomas Telford. It is a 70-foot (21 m) high and 710-foot (220 m) long navigable aqueduct that carries what is now the Llangollen Canal across the Ceiriog Valley near Chirk, on the England-Wales border, spanning the two countries, and it was briefly the tallest navigable one ever built, and it now is Grade II* listed in both England and Wales. It forms part of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct World Heritage Site.


To the right of the aqueduct can be seen the railway viaduct which was built later alongside the aqueduct. It is slightly higher than the aqueduct.

I love your viewpoint and composition here Amelia..............the reflections are really lovely. The aqueduct must be immensely strong to carry the weight of the water and the cast iron lining!

There should be a poem to go with a title like that. Maybe it is the whole poem: All the world’s an aqueduct...There’s a cheery thought!
