Visit the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct on your Canal Boat Holiday
Called the stream in the sky because at 126 feet high you are much higher than the trees, you are right up in the sky looking down on the Dee valley with the river running through it.
It is 1007 feet long and built in1795-1805 and the mortar was made of oxen blood, lime and water.
It holds 1.5 million gallons of water that lies in an iron trough measuring 11ft 10 inches wide and 5 foot 3 inches deep.
A path runs along one side and to the other is the aqueduct which carries your boat across with nothing to the side except fresh air!
