Aqueduct has sad family connection; FEEDBACK.
The photograph clearly shows the viaduct with railings! I hail from the village of Cefn Mawr, which is not far from Wrexham.
Across the valley from Cefn Mawr and adjacent village of Trefor is the village of Froncysyllte. Both villages are "joined" to Froncysyllte by the Pontcysyllte aqueduct, which is a World Heritage site.
Is the photographer mistaken? Surely this photograph is of the Pontcysyllte aqueduct and I would suggest he was standing by the road that connects Trefor to Froncysyllte.
My great Taid Edwin Bartley drowned in the canal while crossing the aqueduct on March 7, 1903. He's buried in St David's Church cemetery, Froncysyllte.
