A lovely place for a beautiful walk with amazing views. The walkway across is narrow with water on one side and a large drop on the other.

This aqueduct is huge. When drive there you can see epic views of the aqueduct, but they cannot match the views from above on it. It was cold out so the boats weren't really running at the time but there are a bunch there.

This attraction is well worth a visit, if only to stand midway across the aqueduct, clutching the railings, legs a-quivering, looking down to the river 126 feet below! This is a masterful piece of construction, especially given its age (212 years), and is another splendid...More

Family canoe trip along the canal and across the aquaduct just after Christmas. Freezing fog, but an excellent feeling looking down on the river from the aquaduct.

Such a lovely place to visit! I hadn't imagined it to be as nice as it was there. It could have done with a railing going along between the path and canal as it's a bit tight when passing people! I'll definitely go back when...More

I don't know the duration of journey but suggest if travelling both ways over the aqueduct at least 10 minutes each way. Having not taken a boat but walked on the towpath along it the aqueduct it really is worthwhile for the... More

The visitor centre and access across the aqueduct are on opposite sides but wheelchair access should be possible. Actually go across the aqueduct maybe more problematic as it is very narrow ( towpath wide) with no guard rail... More
