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.

Llangollen in HDR

Just last week I made a mad dash from Cambridge to Chester and then on to Llangollen to visit some family. As I wasn’t anticipating a day of photography, I left all my lenses barring the walkabout Tamron 18-250. Llangollen is a pretty little town in North Wales probably best known for the Llangollen steam railway and the Llangollen canal that passes over the River Dee on the Pontcysyllte aqueduct.
