Today, we both agreed that we had not stopped for over a week and needed a rest. So we have stayed at Trevor.

Around mid morning we took the dog across the aqueduct and explored the surrounding countryside
The aqueduct is 1007' long, 11' wide and 5'3" deep. It is supported on 19 arches with each having a span of 45'. As it crosses the River Dee it is 126' high. Built by Thomas Telford in 1826. It is now a World Heritage Site.

We walked across the River Dee on an old toll bridge dating 1678
On our return it started raining, and has continued all afternoon, so were glad we stayed put. We did venture out to the Telford Inn and have a well deserved meal and drink this evening.
