Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

By jackndanni  
The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is a navigable aqueduct that carries the Llangollen Canal across the River Dee in the Vale of Llangollen in northeast Wales.

The 18-arched stone and cast iron structure is for use by narrowboats and was completed in 1805 having taken ten years to design and build. It is 12 ft (3.7 metres) wide and is the longest aqueduct in Great Britain and the highest canal aqueduct in the world.

I took this photo with an old phone (Nokia N91) and it's probably one of the best photo's I've taken.

Great shot - and thanks for the history. I love the splash of colour that lifts the gloom of the Great British weather.
