Pontcysyllte Aqueduct to be closed for two-and-a-half months

According to North Wales Live, walkers have been given notice of the imminent closure of the world’s highest navigable aqueduct. 

In the New Year, the spectacular crossing at Pontcysyllte is to shut for two-and-a-half months so it can be “dewatered”.

Visitors planning post-Christmas walks will have just seven days to blow away the cobwebs before maintenance starts on a four-mile stretch of the Llangollen Canal. 

Water will be pumped from the canal to enable the structure to be inspected.
