Chirk Aqueduct and Viaduct

As seen from Pontcysyllte aqueduct. The aqueduct is not visible in this picture but the arches that can be seen are of the railway viaduct over the Dee.. This viaduct was built between 1846-8 by Henry Robertson. The viaduct stands 100 feet tall and towers about 30 feet over the Chirk aqueduct that carries the Llangollen canal.
