Engraving after an original drawing by G Pickering. Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, also known as Llangollen Aqueduct was designed by the civil engineer Thomas Telford (1757-1834) to carry the Llangollen Branch of the Shropshire Union Canal over the valley of the River Dee. Built in 1795-1805, Telford's design involved a cast iron trough supported on stone piers to carry the water of the canal (and boats) 125 feet above the river. The aqueduct was 1000 feet long.
