The trip across the viaduct is one not to miss the barge owners are so knowledgable about the building of the viaduct and surrounding area. The trip can also be a wonderful time to have a group visit with a meal and drinks on board...More

This really is an amazing example of engineering, totally terrifying if you're nervous of heights! The only problem we encountered was the number of people who ignored the no bikes sign at the start of the walk across. Getting past people was made a lot...More

Lovely walk along the canal with tremendous views from the aqueduct. Also a great pub near the aqueduct called the Telford Inn with really great food. Worth the trip on a nice day.

Seen features on this for many years- visually striking, a wonderful experience to walk over the aqueduct, - so good that now need to back in a barge. Must be a wonder of the country. Fabulous.

It's worth a special trip to see this aqueduct: a canal boat channel running more than 150 feet above the Dee River Valley. You can also cross on a walkway next to the channel, unless you are subject to vertigo. The visitors' center includes artifacts...More
