Another wonderful Aqueduct along the Llangollen canal offering great views and a wonderful experience in walking across it. If you are in the area it won't take up much of your time, it's free and enjoyable, what's not to like !

Walking along the canal is beautiful on a fine day it was a warm August day when we went, seeing the barges and the ducks swimming

If you are in the area Chirk is definitely worth a visit! The aqueduct isn't the biggest in the area but with the viaduct behind it is equally impressive. Also the walk through the canal tunnel is amazing!!! I preferred this over all the aqueducts!...More

Sadly NOT at Chirk ( only if you hitch a ride ) but the LLangollen Viaduct does trips across that Viaduct from Trevor side you can walk across and ride a barge back ..

You can park in Chirk itself and walk to the aqueduct, its not far. Both aqueducts are spectacular and are both worth visiting, I prefer Chirk because of the railway viaduct running parallel and slightly higher than the canal
