Fabulous views and well worth a visit. Once across the aqueduct you can continue to walk along the more peaceful canal path.

Marvellous feat of engineering. We had a difficult walk across due to the poor weather but would still recommend it. Good toilet facilities in the car park. Nothing else open.

Great walk on a summers day, perfect views from both sides (mind the drop!) and a lovely pub with food down by the bridge. Perfect for picnics and reading

Stunning, that just about sums it up! Well worth a visit, would highly recommend. Nice to spend a few hours having a mooch around and a nice amble along the aqueduct. Really nice pub near by, the pie is to die for!

We went here on a very windy day with young kids which made the experience even more memorable. No charge and a lovely walk with fantastic views what more could you ask for. Free parking an extra bonus.
