The Llangollen branch of the Shropshire Union Canal must be one of the most spectacular and scenic canals in Britain. Crossing the Chirk Aqueduct, 70 feet above the wooded valley is a dizzying experience, and not for those suffering from vertigo. It was built between 1796 and 1801 by Thomas Telford and William Jessop to carry the Ellesmere Canal. Running parallel to it is the 100 feet high viaduct. Both have ten spans with rounded arches.
