Designed and built by Thomas Telford and Williams Jessop between 1795 and 1805 when it opened, Pontcysyllte means 'the bridge that connects' and is a World Heritage Site.  The bridge is 336 yd (307 m) long, 12 ft (3.7 m) wide and 5 ft 3 in (1.60 m) deep. It consists of a cast iron trough supported 126 ft (38 m) above the river Dee on iron arched ribs carried on eighteen hollow masonry piers (pillars). Each of the 18 spans is 53 ft (16 m) wide.

Yes it is a canal barge. It is the highest in the UK. Swimming would be cool. You can see the fish and it isn't very deep
