The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, a 1,000-foot bridge that carries the Llangollen branch of the Shropshire Union Canal 116 feet (35 m) high across the valley of the River Dee, was designed by Thomas Telford, built between 1795 and 1805, and is one of the 'Wonders of the Waterways' in Britain's canal system.
