World Heritage Canal

Thomas Telford and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

Paul A Lynn

Completed in 1805, the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct carries an 11-mile stretch of the Ellesmere Canal across the River Dee on its way from Liverpool to Llangollen in Wales. Illustrated with photographs, prints and maps, this study outlines the history of aqueducts from Roman times, explains the commissioning and construction of this engineering feat, profiles its creator, Thomas Telford, and celebrates its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2009.
