The Highest Canal Aqueduct in the World just got Emptied!

327. The highest canal aqueduct in the world just got emptied!

At 220 years old, the world-famous Pontcysyllte aqueduct in north Wales is doing very well for its age but it does need a lot of care and maintenance. Every 20 years it’s drained of water for a full inspection and I’ve been along to see what the Canal & River Trust’s engineers have found this time around.
