Did you know that the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct near Wrexham is both the longest and highest aqueduct in Britain? Built by Thomas Telford (under the supervision of the then more experienced William Jessop) it is a cast iron trough more than 1000 feet long, held 128 feet above the ground. The structure opened to traffic on November 26 1805. It is now a World Heritage Site.
