As soon as you get to the Aqueduct you know that it is a special place. The location is just stunning. It is great that you can walk over it alongside the canal and see not only Telford's house, but the stunning valley below and in the distance. You can go over it in a barge if you want to. Car parks are all within walking distance. There are also places selling drinks nearby. Definitely worth a visit. The toilets though leave a lot to be desired. I suggest you take some tissues with you.

The Aqueduct at Chirk is a great sight and a testament to the building quality of the Victorian times in that is still serves its purpose.

it's the absolutely must place when in Chirk. A man from the canal boat had confirmed that the aqueduct is very narrow

Ive always wanted to visit this place but I’ve never had a chance before. I’m amazed by it, its lovely to walk over and watch the scenery, we didn’t get a chance to pass through by boat but I’m sure that would be excellent too.

We had just been to Pontcysyllte, whch was extremely busy and this was much quieter and just as impressive with the railway viaduct towering above us. and easier to reach.
We were impressed by the skill of the engineers and workmen, who produced these amazing structures.

Visited the area whilst on holiday and we weren’t disappointed. It was a beautiful walk with stunning views.
Everyone on the barges were chatty and it was really interesting to see.
