The Aquaduct

We left Wales for the Lakes District but not before visiting the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct, a few minutes from where we were staying. 
The aqueduct is over 30 metres high and about 300 metres long. It was built in the early 1800s to allow canel boats to across the valley. 
The canel boats are so quaint and it would be a lovely way to spend a leisurely couple of days if we had the time, sadly we don't.
On to Windermere in the Lakes District and more beautiful scenery but not many photos taken. Lots more tomorrow though.
