The two hour trips on the motorised
canal boat Thomas Telford carry you through the beautiful Vale of
Llangollen and across the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct built by
Thomas Telford between 1795 and 1805. This length of canal is a
World Heritage Site.
The country's biggest navigable aqueduct
towers a massive 126ft (38m) above the River Dee supported by 18
stone piers. The canal runs through an iron trough 1007 feet (306.9
metres) long, 11 feet 10 inches (3.6 metres) wide and 5 feet 3
inches (1.6 metres) deep. Water is fed from the River Dee at the
Horseshoe Falls near Llangollen.
Our purpose built motor narrowboat the Thomas Telford is fully
weather proof and is centrally heated with comfortable seats and
excellent views from every table. There is an informative live
commentary on board and the bar is open throughout the journey.
