We've been in charge of this thing for minutes and already we're hundreds of feet up on the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Very strange sensation. Beautiful day.

Wonderful image! How long is the elevated aqueduct?
I think I'd better google this.

eek, I had to sit inside when I went over this viaduct.....needless to say the kids hung out as far as they could just to scare me :-)

I've often seen it from the A5, always wondered what it's like to be on top of it.

You do get a lovely view from up there (if you can bear to look).

Harimanjaro, I'm not 100% sure if this is the one you'll have seen from the A5. The Chirk Aqueduct a few miles away is closer to the road...

It's not scary really. Totally solid. Been there 200 years.

I googled it, and then talked to Dave (partner and smartarse/engineer type person) .... and I have to say I am quite taken with the idea of doing the canal holiday ..... however I think he would have to invent a parachute/lifejacket combo before I would feel safe doing that crossing .... did I mention that I suffer from a touch vertigo ?
